Sailors Childrens Society – Providing help to children of seafarers since 1821

Sailors’ Children’s Society is a national charity that provides support to children whose parent has made a living at sea or from the inland canals or rivers.  We help mariners from fishing fleets, Royal Navy and Merchant Navy families including ferries, cruise ships, cargo ships and Offshore industries.

If you have served at sea, have school-aged children and are in receipt of means-tested benefits you may be eligible for our support.

On Monday 19th April 2021 we marked the 200th year since the Sailor’s Children’s charity began, providing support to seafarer’s families, in need, since 1821.  On this day we celebrated the charity and the thousands of families which it has supported.  Through the decades we have helped generations of seafarers, and the pledge we made 200 years ago to help disadvantaged children of these families continues today from our offices on the Newland Homes estate in Hull.  Our 200 Year Celebrations Video is available to view on YouTube by clicking here

We are delighted to announce the launch of our “Together for 200 Challenge” via our fundraising platform, Enthuse.  The Challenge will run throughout our Bi-Centenary Year.  Please get involved and register through Enthuse as an individual or as part of a team.  Thank you for all of your support during these difficult times.
