Financial & Practical Assistance

In our capacity as an “umbrella” charity, welfare support is provided using our unique and comprehensive knowledge of the maritime charity sector, together with our wide network of other sources of help.
Whilst the Board itself does not provide grants to individuals, our dedicated staff are trained to assist by accessing guidance and practical financial support for serving or retired seafarers, their dependants or those acting on their behalf.
We can arrange for a trained volunteer (caseworker) to visit people in their own homes to help them complete an application form for financial assistance.  Alternatively we have our own Preliminary Application for Assistance Form which is available for download for those happy to complete the Preliminary Application Form in the first instance.
If you are in need of assistance or guidance please contact us.

N.B This form must be completed, signed & returned by post in order for us to investigate the best possible source of assistance.
