Charity number


Sailors’ Children’s Society was formed in 1821 and is a national charity providing support for over 450 disadvantaged children of seafarers in the UK who have served in the Royal/Merchant Navy or the Fishing Fleets including ferries, tankers and cruise ships. Families come to us usually after a traumatic event such as bereavement, diagnosis of a terminal illness or the breakdown of a marital relationship. Our Family Support Scheme provides financial support through monthly grants designed to boost income and provide basic essentials, twice yearly school clothing grants and Christmas grants to the families of children of former seafarers who are in severe financial difficulty and on a means tested benefit. We also offer our families the opportunity of one week's holiday at one of our 7 caravans we own at seaside resorts around the county.
