Nominations are open for a prestigious welfare award in the maritime sector.

The Annual Award for Service to Seafarers’ Welfare, founded in 1988 by the Merchant Navy Welfare Board (MNWB), is given for exceptional service to the welfare of seafarers or fishers.

Nominees can be either salaried personnel or volunteers in the maritime charity sector and should have a history of making a positive and proactive contribution to the welfare of seafarers over a long period of time.

Stuart Rivers, Chief Executive of the MNWB which is the umbrella charity for Merchant Navy and fishing fleets that supports and promotes co-operation between organisations providing welfare services to seafarers, fishermen and their dependents, said:

"This is a fantastic award which, since it was established 34 years ago, has been awarded to so many worthy recipients. These have been very challenging times and we know many people in the maritime welfare sector have gone above and beyond what is usually expected.

“With that in mind, I’d strongly urge you to submit your nominations so we can help to recognise the amazing and exceptional work that is being done to support to seafarers and fishers.”

Nominations for the award can be made here

The closing date for nominations is 29 July 2022.  The award will be announced on World Maritime Day – 29 September 2022.

  • The Board kindly requests that you do not inform a nominee of his or her nomination.
