In 2018, Seafarers UK awarded an amazing £2.5m 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 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 including ex-seafarers and veterans, dependants, those currently working at sea, as well as those training for a career 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.
