Our Charity of the Year
The Fishermen’s Mission is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care. We help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.
Suicide amongst fishermen is not uncommon.
We will keep talking to someone on the phone until they believe that their life is still worth living.
1 in 14 fishermen lose their life at work.
We provide continual emergency support, day & night for accidents at sea.
A life at sea is tough.
We offer a safe place where fishermen can share their vulnerabilities and discuss their worries with us.
