Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants




The Gibraltar Seafarers' Welfare Board (formerly the Gibraltar Port Welfare Committee) has 16 Members who represent a wide range of maritime agencies and societies involved with seafarers' welfare.

The Gibraltar Seafarers' Welfare Board 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 Gibraltar Seafarers' Welfare Board meets three times per year. Meetings are rotated and hosted by Member organisations at venues across Gibraltar.

2020 Meetings are as follows:

Thursday, 13th February - General Meeting, Gibraltar Port Authority

Thursday, 4th June - General Meeting, venue tbc

Friday, 2nd October - Annual General Meeting, venue tbc
