Sailors’ Society has been developing innovative ways of improving communication between chaplains, seafarers, seafarers’ families and our offices.
The result is a growing suite of apps, which has attracted huge interest in the industry and charitable sectors. Our first app, which is now called Ship Visitor-ICMA, has been made available to all ICMA member organisations and has revolutionised the way in which chaplaincy services are delivered.
Ship Visitor-ICMA App
This app allows chaplains to connect as well as report and analyse data on how they are helping seafarers in real-time. Data can be accessed by chaplains in other ports to provide ongoing care and assistance, subject to confidentiality and data protection policies.
SeaWives is a free online forum offering advice, discussion and a support network for wives, partners and families of seafarers. We are funding the SeaWives App, connecting wives and partners of seafarers so friendships can be made and support given.
