Charity / Social Enterprises / Not for Profit
The Charity, the Fishermen’s Mission is a lifeline for many and plays a vital role in fighting poverty and despair in our fishing communities.
We do this by providing emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Here are just some of the ways we can help:
-Providing immediate assistance to the families of fishermen who have been killed or injured
-Looking after survivors of fishing boat accidents by finding medical help, a bed for the night or providing a hot meal and dry clothes
-Supporting fishermen’s families during illness, distress or financial problems
-Alleviating loneliness by visiting retired fishermen and their families at home or in hospital
-Offering welfare and support to all fishermen working in the UK fishing industry
-Providing Christian pastoral and practical help with problems such as debt, sickness and bereavement as well as helping to pay bills, buy food and keep house and home together.
