Our new free-of-charge Wellness at Sea e-learning puts your wellbeing in your hands, providing you with the tools and resources you need to help you to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life as a seafarer.

Available on and offline, our e-learning gives you the flexibility to learn in your own time, in your own way.



This year will see the return of our hugely popular virtual Wellness at Sea Cadet Conferences. In 2024 we are holding four virtual events for cadets at schools in North Asia, South East Asia, Africa and the UK.


Rely on us

Any seafarer in desperate trouble or just needing to talk to someone only has to call us or send a message.
We are here 24/7 to support those who keep the world trade moving, despite huge personal sacrifices.
Seafarers ensure we have food, fuel, medicines and more than 90 per cent of everything we own and use.
We ensure they have what they need when crises hit.

"Times change; but the plights that face seafarers do not. Sailors’ Society is here today, as it has been for the past two centuries, to care for those who work on our seas, and upon whom we all rely. These men and women, an invisible workforce, make great sacrifices; away from loved ones for many months at a time and facing dangers. Each and every one of us owes a huge debt of gratitude to our seafarers and those who support them."

HM Queen Elizabeth II - Sailors' Society's Patron 1952-2022

“For 200 years, Sailors’ Society has supported seafarers, their families and maritime communities, right across the globe and often at the hardest times for them... the organisation is a crucial part of the maritime industry and I’m sure it will continue to be so for centuries to come.”

Nusrat Ghani MP - Minister for Maritime 2018-2022
