SeafarerHelp is the free, confidential, multilingual helpline for seafarers and their families available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. SeafarerHelp is provided by the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN), an organisation that works to promote the welfare of seafarers and their families. SeafarerHelp helps seafarers of any nationality, religion, gender or sexuality whatever their problem, wherever they are in the world.
The Seafarer Centre Directory provides information if you’re entering a new port and want to find out where to access the nearest facilities. If you can’t find facilities wherever you are, Seafarers Help recommends contacting them and they’ll try to find someone to help. Details of seafarer centres are also available via the Shore Leave app provided by the ITF Seafarers’ Trust.
