Dear Colleagues,

Shipping Charities

As previously reported the Nautical Welfare Guide can now be accessed by going to and clicking on “Maritime Charities Welfare Guide”.

Through the online facility there are in excess of 150 charities providing assistance to all seafarers and their dependents. One such charity is the Royal Seamen’s Pension Fund which is now administered by the Shipwrecked Fishermans & Mariners Royal Benevolent Society (please see attached).

The guide can also be accessed by a freephone service which is operated from 09.30 – 16.30 Monday to Friday on 0800 121 4765.

I would be grateful if you could bring this information to the attention of your Branch.

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
