Sailors’ Society is a Christian maritime welfare charity that meets the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of seafarers and their families, irrespective of religion or ethnicity, in ports all around the world.

At home: We work with seafaring communities providing education and welfare opportunities for families who are without a parent (husband or wife, brother, sister, father or mother) for months at a time. The Society’s recent work in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan is one example of this.

At Sea: The Society is committed to providing resources and publications to help seafarers whilst onboard. We are exploring new technology to enable services through virtual chaplaincy and engaging with seafarers through social media platforms. The Society’s Chart and Compass magazine has a reach of over 100,000 and we expect to see that double in the coming year.

In Port: Most obviously we reach seafarers through port chaplaincy and ship visiting activity. This is the core work of the charity and we intend to expand our port coverage in the coming years with a port expansion programme. To better enable this service, and help inform the strategy of expansion, we are embracing the use of modern technology including the development of our Ship Visitors ApP.
