Summary: Seafarers UK (King George’s Fund for Sailors) is an ‘umbrella’ charity that, since 1917, has been giving grants to maritime welfare and other charities. Registered charities and other organisations that help seafarers or ex-seafarers can apply for support from Seafarers UK. Grants totaling £2.5 million are paid annually.
Note/Restrictions: By seafarers we mean someone who is, or once was, in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, Merchant Navy or fishing fleets. We also give grants to charities which help seafarers' families, including widows and children, and dependants.
In 2019, our grants programme awarded £2.2 m in total funding
AND THIS FUNDING SUPPORTED MORE THAN 209,000 PEOPLE
To continue our work in aiding seafarers who are in need and their families, we need to raise as much money as possible in support of the organisations and projects that are making a real difference to people’s lives across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets and Royal Navy.
