Seafarers UK is a charity that provides grants to other front line charities working right across the maritime sector. We support charities that help seafarers or ex-seafarers from the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Merchant Navy or fishing fleets. We also give grants to maritime youth groups and charities that help seafarers’ families, including widows and children.
Seafarers UK supports mainly UK-based charities that provide help across a broad spectrum of welfare need including housing, debt, injury, relationship breakdown and family bereavement. Occasionally we provide grants to maritime charities from other Commonwealth countries.
