Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants

East Anglia


East Anglia

The East Anglia Port Welfare Committee currently has 19 Members who represent a wide range of maritime agencies and societies involved with seafarers' welfare.

The Port Welfare Committee provides a forum where Members can meet regularly to share information and best practise. As well as providing mutual support and the opportunity to network with colleagues from across the maritime sector, PWC Meetings also provide an opportunity to brief members on national policies and issues that may be relevant to visiting or resident seafarers and their families.

The East Anglia Port Welfare Committee meets three times per year. Meetings are rotated and hosted by Member organisations at venues across the area.

2020 Meetings are as follows:

Tuesday, 17th March - General Meeting, Gardline, Great Yarmouth

Tuesday, 7th July - General Meeting, Lowestoft Community Church

Tuesday 10th November - Annual General Meeting, Gorleston Baptist Church


Mr Charles Critoph (Gardline Group)

Vice Chairman
