SAIL is an advice service that’s completely free for seafarers and their families.
To do that we depend on the generous support of our funders: Seafarers Hospital Society, The Seafarers’ Charity and Greenwich Hospital. Thank you.
The Seafarers Hospital Society is a longestablished maritime charity dedicated to meeting the health, welfare and advice needs of seafarers. It focuses its help on merchant seafarers and fishermen. The Seafarers Hospital Society provides health and welfare grants to seafarers and their dependants, and to the maritime organisations that care for them.
The Seafarers' Charity is a charity that helps people in the maritime community, by providing vital funding to support seafarers in need and their families. It focuses on giving money to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines. In 2013, the Seafarers' Charity gave grants totalling £2.5 million to over 80 maritime welfare charities.
Greenwich Hospital is a unique Crown Charity, which has been supporting the Royal Navy since 1694. It provides charitable support including annuities, sheltered housing and education to serving and retired personnel of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines and their dependants.
