The UK has a long seafaring history so there are many maritime charities which support working and retired seafarers.
But it’s confusing. There are charities supporting older seafarers, seafaring families, giving help for medical issues, giving educational support, helping with funeral costs or providing money for a new cooker or washing machine.
And each charity has different rules about which seafarers it can help.
