The Mission to Seafarers


Day and night, The Mission to Seafarers is on call for seafarers in over 200 ports around the world. With over 90% of world trade carried by sea, providing work to 1.5 million seafarers, we offer much needed practical, emotional and spiritual support through ship-visits, our seafarers' centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services. All of which is made possible by through our global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers.

Our mission is to care for the shipping industry’s most important asset: its people. We are grateful for the constant acts of kindness that allow us, in turn, to serve the people that make sacrifices to keep our global economy afloat.

The Seafarers' Charity


Doing more for seafarers. And doing it even better

At The Seafarers’ Charity (formerly Seafarers UK), we’ve been improving the lives of seafarers and their families for over 100 years. We started as the King George’s Fund for Sailors, providing vital assistance in troubled times. Today, we’re guided by the same powerful vision. Through our grant giving, we’re bringing about truly life-changing impact for many who work –or have worked –at sea, and their families. Alongside this we’re also using funding collaboration, research, and advocacy to tackle the root causes of seafarer hardship and disadvantage in the UK and around the world.
