Supporting the provision of quality welfare for seafarers and their dependants




The Southern Port Welfare Committee currently has 25 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 Southern Port Welfare Committee meets three times per year. Meetings are rotated and hosted by Members at venues across the Southern region.

Thursday, 16th January - General Meeting, Portsmouth International Port
