The Seafarers Charity

At The Seafarers’ Charity, our vision is to create ‘a world where seafarers and their families are valued and free of need and disadvantage’. We’ve been improving their lives since 1917, when we launched as the King George’s Fund for Sailors (KGFS).

Ambitious. Proactive. Real. We’re seeking out ways to tackle the core, systemic issues so seafarers can live dignified lives.

Since 1917, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of seafarers and their families, at all stages of their lives, through our grant awards to expert delivery partners. Our new strategy 'Thrive' sets out an ambitious plan for strengthening support to seafarers in 2021-2024.
