Seapost - November 2023

The latest e-newsletter from The Seafarers' Charity.

We're thrilled to announce a new annual National Fishing Remembrance Day on Sunday, May 12, 2024, to commemorate all those who have lost their lives while fishing at sea.

On Remembrance Sunday, we honoured the Royal and Merchant Navies and the UK Fishing Fleet with a wreath laid at the Merchant Navy War Memorial.

We'd also like to highlight our new 'Working in UK Fishing Pre-Departure' films, produced in collaboration with Stella Maris and Waitrose, aiming to empower foreign crew members with insights into life in UK fishing fleets, legal rights, and avenues for support in case of abuse or exploitation.

For those of you seeking a challenge while supporting our cause, you can make a difference by joining #TeamSeafarersKGFS for the London Marathon 2024.

You can also support our keyworkers by shopping online on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, generating free donations at no extra cost to you.

Check out the latest episode of the Sea Views podcast, exploring topics ranging from the role of insurance to initiatives supporting seafarers' mental health, funded by The Seafarers' Charity and CHIRP.

Finally, we published a topical blog exploring the importance of creating a menopause-friendly workplace, contributing to the broader conversation on workplace inclusivity.
