Seafarers Awareness Week
Seafarers Awareness Week is an annual campaign coordinated by Seafarers UK – the leading charity for seafarers in need – to raise awareness of Britain’s dependence on seafarers. (The campaign aligns with the International Maritime Organization's annual event, Day of the Seafarer.)
Seafarers UK has been helping seafarers and their families since 1917. It provides grants of £2.5 million annually to more than 70 charities and organisations across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
