Our volunteer ship visitors welcome visiting seafarers, visit them on board ships, offer welfare services and advice, practical help, pastoral care and friendship.
Our mission - We reach out to seafarers, caring for their needs and providing practical and pastoral help.
Solidarity - We stand alongside seafarers, recognising them as our brothers and sisters in need. We campaign for their rights to be upheld and their intrinsic human dignity to be acknowledged.
Welfare - Recognising that seafarers are men and women with human needs, we stand alongside them when they are abandoned, exploited, lonely and deprived.
Hospitality We welcome seafarers to our shores and visit them on boardship or invite them to ecumenical centres where they can contact loved ones back home, relax and be sure of an attentive ear.
