The Sailor’s Children Society
Families come to us usually after a traumatic event such as bereavement, diagnosis of a terminal illness or the breakdown of a marital relationship. We provide ongoing support for the children until the family is again self-sufficient or until the children have left full time education. All the families we help are on a means tested benefit which ensures we only help those in most need.
The Society is funded via donations, legacies, local fundraising events, trusts and grants such as Seafarers UK, Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Trinity House. In these uncertain economic times the funding we receive from our major funders and Trusts is extremely important to us. Without this funding we would struggle to help all of our existing families and also seafaring families in the future.
