Thank you for considering making a donation to Seafarers UK.

Seafarers UK does not receive any government funding so your donations are incredibly important to us and seafarers and their families who need help.

By making a donation today you will help seafarers from the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines, who often endure a very demanding working environment, yet all play a vital role in our everyday lives, whether by transporting over 90% of all UK imports, catching fish for our plates, or defending our shores.

Your support in 2019 alone helped to fund 43 organisations and projects that provide essential support for seafarers in need and their families. Learn more about the impact of your donations.

Seafarers UK Christmas Appeal

Emergency Christmas Appeal

It has been a very difficult and challenging year for many of us, but the impact of the pandemic has hit the seafaring community especially hard. As we approach Christmas, the crisis is far from over. With thousands of seafarers still stranded at sea as a result of COVID-19, we urgently need your support to bring more families together this Christmas.
