Northern Ireland

The Northern Ireland Port Welfare Committee currently has 20 Members who represent a wide range of maritime agencies and societies involved with seafarer’s welfare. 

The Port Welfare Committee provides a forum where Members can meet regularly, share to 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.
