The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million crewmen and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.

We work in over 200 ports caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through our global network of Chaplains, Staff and Volunteers we offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship-visits, Flying Angel seafarers' centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.
