Working in 200 ports and 50 countries Throughout a long and distinguished history, The Mission to Seafarers has grown to become one of the largest port-based welfare operators in the world, providing a service in around 200 ports, 365 days a year, across 50 countries. International Headquarters (IHQ) in London supports over 70 frontline staff and around 100 Honorary Chaplains in addition to an army of Volunteers, who visit ships, offer hospitality, drive minibuses and engage in a range of other welfare activity. Our vision is to operate a network where seafarers are valued and cared for in the ports where the need is greatest. We are determined to be in the right ports with the right resources offering support which is relevant, compassionate and life enhancing. To download our map click here.
