Sailors’ Society is committed to maintaining and furthering the health and wellbeing of seafarers.
Beginning with the launch of Wellness at Sea in January 2015, the Society has since provided a number of different health and well-being initiatives, such as a Crisis Response Centre in South Africa, ear and eye testing in India and additional plans to create a psychosocial project in the Philippines.
Wellness at Sea
A holistic wellness programme delivered to seafarers to improve their on-board wellbeing. The programme focusses on social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual well-being.
The Crisis Response Network
A rapid response service to assist traumatised seafarers after piracy attacks and other crisis-at-sea situations. This network of trained port chaplains provides a 24-hour service.
Eye and Ear Testing
Funding vital ear and eye testing at Kandla Seafarers' Centre to improve seafarers' health through early identification of eye or ear problems.
