Doing more for seafarers. And doing it even better
At The Seafarers’ Charity (formerly Seafarers UK), our vision is to create ‘a world where seafarers and their families are valued and free of need and disadvantage’. We’ve been improving their lives since 1917, when we launched as the King George’s Fund for Sailors. Conceived by far-sighted ship owners and officers, and championed by King George V, the KGFS is a key strand of our DNA and something of which we’re very proud. Today, The Seafarers’ Charity is an evolving, forward-looking charity – building on past successes but expanding our capabilities to make a genuine difference.
By taking part in an event in support of our charity, you will be enabling us to further our reach and help more seafarers and their families in times of need.
