Efforts in extending assistance to seafarers remain robust

Maritime safety

Crew can receive improved assistance facilitated by The Seafarers’ Charity through their new website

After successfully raising more than US$1 million for Seafarers International Relief Fund (SIRF) within months, The Seafarers’ Charity has enhanced their reach to seafarers needing help through a revamped page.

Enhancing assistance for seafarers
The Seafarers’ Charity is the largest grant-awarding maritime charity. It had just unveiled a new website, facilitating seamless grant applications with comprehensive guides on available support. The charity works with delivery partners to support seafarers worldwide, reflecting the global nature of seafaring.

Their revamped website serves as a one-stop shop where other maritime charities and non-profit organisations within and outside of the UK, can apply for funding to deliver a wide range of welfare services to seafarers and their families in need. It will also allow the charity to celebrate its many loyal supporters, while providing interested parties with information on how they can participate or make donations.

The website also updates on the charity’s latest grants, impact achieved and its influence across the maritime sector, including fundraising and challenge events, as well as publications and campaigns. The site also features their milestones from over 100 years of operation and welfare work.

Its strong network with several seafarer charities has produced stellar results. Last March, the charity released its new, results-driven strategy ‘Thrive’, that aimed to identify and address the root causes of hardship and disadvantages seafarers suffered. Apart from their successful SIRF, continue, such as the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network, Sailors’ Society, The Mission to Seafarers, Befrienders International and Safer Waves offer a complete range of support and care for seafarers.
