Seafarer Support is a free, confidential referral service for serving and retired seafarers and their families in times of need.

Sometimes we need a little help in steering a course through life’s problems and Seafarer Support can guide families to sources of help.

As the single point of contact for the UK maritime charity sector, working with nearly 150 charities and organisations, Seafarer Support can help individuals and professionals to avoid the effort and stress of approaching numerous charities and organisations by directing people to the most appropriate sources of help. 

If you know of a former serving Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, Royal Marine or fishing fleet seafarer or family member who is looking for support, get in touch with our friendly team today.

We aim to respond to all enquiries within three working days. Our staff will ask a few questions about the help you are looking for. We work with each individual to see if there are suitable sources of help to meet their needs. If necessary, we can arrange for a trained caseworker to visit a family home.
