Seafarers UK

Seafarers Uk is a charity that has been supporting the maritime community for 100 years.  They fund organisations that make a real difference to people's lives across the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets in the UK and Commonwealth.  The services they fund have a positive impact on all seafarers.

A "Seafarer" is defined as any person who is employed or engaged or works in any capacity on board a ship, and whose normal place of work is on a ship.

There is currently a choice of two grant programmes: -

  1. The Seafarers UK Grants Programme:  This is the main grants programme and is open to organisations the support UK and/or Commonwealth seafarers.
  2. Merchant Navy Fund:  This is a separate programme administered by Seafarers UK on behalf of the Merchant Navy Welfare Board.  It is aimed specifically at organisations that help UK Merchant Navy seafarers and their families.

Application Form:  Online application process.  Full guidelines are available to download from the website.

Deadline: Applications can be made at any time.  Decisions on grant applications are made a minimum of six times a year.
