Seamen's Hospital Society

The Seamen’s Hospital Society is a long-established maritime charity dedicated to meeting the health, welfare and advice needs of seafarers.
We provide health and welfare grants to seafarers and their dependants, and to the maritime organisations that care for them. We also support a number of other services provided exclusively for seafarers.
If you are or have been a merchant seafarer or fisherman, we’re here to help you and the people who depend on you
