Seafarers Awareness Week

Seafarers Awareness Week is the annual campaign coordinated by Seafarers UK – the leading charity for seafarers in need – to raise awareness of Britain’s dependence on seafarers.

Seafarers UK gives grants of £2.5 million annually to more than 70 charities and organisations that help seafarers, their families and dependents, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

2016's Seafarers Awareness Week took place between 20-26 June.
