Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants
Depending upon its surplus income the Board will award grants towards capital projects. Each application will be prioritised on merit against the total funds available that year. In the case of larger projects the Board may consider partnership funding with other charities.
The Board will consider grants of up to £5,000 for small projects throughout the year. Major grants over £5,000 that can include ‘start up’ costs can be approved at Council meetings throughout the year. All grants for local purposes must be reviewed by the appropriate Port Welfare Committee and their view will be taken into account.
Please download the Grant Guidelines before starting the form.
Assistance with completing an application form Any organisation which does not have the administrative ability to process the application should contact the Board.
Acceptance or Refusal of Grant Applications All organisations will be advised of the outcome of their application within 2 months of the MNWB Council meeting. Thereafter, successful applicants will be asked to confirm, in writing, their acceptance of any terms and conditions associated with the grant.
The 2021 Council meetings are being held in March, July, & November
