Seafarers Advice and Information Line (SAIL)
I am writing to remind all seafarer members of the services offered to them by SAIL which are supported by your Union.
The free helpline (0800 160 1842) and email firstname.lastname@example.org is a ‘citizens advice’ style service for UK merchant navy seafarers and their families. Trained staff provide free and confidential advice to seafarers in a number of areas, including financial, benefits, housing and family.
SAIL is funded and operated by a number of maritime charities, including Seafarers UK and Seafarers Hospital Society (Dreadnought) where RMT is a trustee. More information is available on their website www.sailine.org.uk and a hard copy poster of SAIL’s contact details is attached to this circular for display in mess rooms. To request more posters and/or a batch of SAIL leaflets please contact the Assistant National Secretary, Mark Carden email@example.com
I would be grateful if you could bring the contents of this circular to the attention of members in your branch and you will be kept updated with all further developments.
