Proud to be supporting seafarers and their families worldwide through chaplaincy, education and the relief of poverty and distress.
Founded almost 200 years ago in 1818, Sailors’ Society is a Christian charity supporting and caring for an often forgotten group of people.
We reach out to seafarers of all faiths and none where they work – on board the huge variety of cargo and cruise ships and take them practical services like phone cards to connect with loved
ones at home, the latest newsprint in many languages and access to Wi-Fi hotspots.
Present at many of the key ports around the world, our chaplains and volunteers assist hundreds of thousands of seafarers each year; extending a hand of friendship, hospitality and pastoral care to all we meet regardless of rank or circumstance.
As part of our mission, we provide a wide spectrum of support services – chaplaincy, spiritual guidance and counsel, provision of welfare support to seafarers and their families, assistance with continuing maritime education and, in dire need, financial help.
