Become a corporate supporter

As a grant-giving charity, Seafarers UK invests funds with the sole aim of having a positive impact and progressive change in the lives of people working in the commercial maritime, fishing and naval defence sectors.

Seafarers UK enjoys a number of Corporate Partnerships with companies working across all the maritime sectors we support. These partnerships help us raise vital funds to enable us to assist seafarers in need and their families, dependants and communities.

Seafarers UK’s Corporate Partnerships help to ensure that we are able to achieve positive impacts through the projects and front-line charities that we fund. Seafarers UK’s ethos as a charity is to provide support where the need is greatest.

Charity of the Year

Many companies are discovering the benefits of working with Seafarers UK, helping to make a positive impact in the lives of seafarers and the communities and families that depend on them.

By nominating Seafarers UK as your Charity of the Year, we will work closely with you to engage your employees whilst raising much needed funds for Seafarers UK. By promoting and endorsing your support and fundraising, Seafarers UK will both motivate and inspire your staff and help to promote the good work that you will be involved in.


You can demonstrate your commitment to people working in the maritime industry by supporting one of Seafarers UK’s sponsorship opportunities. Sponsoring a Seafarers UK event or project will help align your company’s values with those of the leading maritime sector-wide grant-giving charity, and increase your brand exposure and engagement with new audiences.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partnerships are an exciting way to link Seafarers UK with your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility aims or KPIs. We will work closely with you to understand your long-term CSR objectives, helping you to realise these goals by linking your support with the right events, projects or beneficiary group.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving – or ‘Give As You Earn’ – means that your employees can donate regular sums that over time will make a real impact to the work that Seafarers UK does to support its beneficiaries the whole year round.

Payroll Giving is a fantastic way for businesses, large and small, to engage with their employees whilst demonstrating social responsibility and a commitment to good causes in their local community and beyond.

It is quick to set up and simple to manage. Payroll Giving is one of the easiest ways to support us as a charity, and it is tax free if you are a UK taxpayer. Please contact Seafarers UK for more details on how you can make this possible for your staff, or read more here.

Team Building Events

With a packed calendar of events ranging from cycle rides, treks and marathons, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with our annual challenge events. Fundraising for an event is a great way to get your employees involved in team building activities whilst raising money for Seafarers UK. We can also help you to run bespoke events just for your company – what about wine tasting for colleagues and clients? Or a five-a-side football tournament to get staff fit while having fun and raising money for Seafarers UK?
