Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants
Originally this was a bespoke two day course aimed at those employees and volunteers of Constituent member charities preparing them to make home visits to serving and ex-seafarers. This package was based on the SSAFA Forces Help model and they kindly provided their own trainer. Since 2012, SSAFA have agreed to open their own courses to staff and volunteers from the maritime charities. This allows personnel flexible access to their numerous courses around the UK. They have also increased the maritime content in their courses.
At the end of the course, participants will be familiar with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to manage a client case in its entirety.
