The Seafarers' Charity

Who we are

 

At The Seafarers’ Charity (formerly Seafarers UK), we’ve been improving the lives of all seafarers and their families for over 100 years. We started as the King George’s Fund for Sailors in 1917 to provide 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.   
We receive no government funding and depend heavily on public donations and legacies. Last year, we were able to award over £3.5m in total funding to over 50 maritime welfare charities.
