Supporting us

In 2018, Seafarers UK awarded an amazing £2.46m in grants to charities and organisations involved in providing welfare, or maritime youth services or projects in the UK and overseas.

With no statutory funding, we rely on supporters, donors, fundraisers and volunteers to be able to carry on providing the long-term aid that each year gives hope and help to thousands of people in need. This included ex-seafarers and Veterans, seafarers’ families and dependants, those currently working at sea, as well as those training to work at sea.

There are many different ways for you to get involved and help to raise vital funds and awareness for seafarers in need and their families, and you can find out more using the links on this page, including: how to donate, campaigns you can support, fundraising events to sign up for, as well as providing support through payroll giving or our lottery.

And if you work for a company that might be interested in partnering with us, then do please read our ‘Become a corporate supporter’ pages.
