Seafarers UK has been supporting seafarers since 1917. But 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.

Please get involved and help to raise vital funds and awareness for seafarers in need and their families.

We have a wide range of challenge events that you can participate in or you can also organise your own fundraising event at home or at work.

Seafarers UK 2020 Events & COVID-19

We are closely monitoring the advice given by the World Health Organisation and Department of Health relating to public events. We will be guided by their decisions and for now we are continuing our plans and preparations for all 2020 events. If anything changes, we will communicate this to our supporters as soon as possible.

Corporate opportunities

We are always looking to collaborate with organisations which share our passion to improve the lives of seafarers in need and their families. Donations from corporate partners make a significant contribution to our work and ensure that we are able to provide essential support to those at sea and at home who find themselves in difficult times.
