Fishermen's Mission — Seafish

Fishermen's Mission

Fishermen's Mission
A UK-based fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care.

The Fishermen’s Mission offers support and advice to all fishermen, active or retired, and their families. They have been actively engaged in a number of recent issues including; mistreatment of workers, family bereavement of a migrant fisherman, possible abuses of non-EEA crew. They have also been working with skippers, agents and enforcement agencies to assist and advise where necessary.

In July 2020 the NFFO, SFF and the Fishermen’s Mission agreed to create a one-stop welfare and well being support hub. There is now an urgent need for a single point of contact to be established so that fishermen can be directed to the support appropriate to each individual case. The Fishermen’s Mission has agreed to operate a ‘one-stop shop’ for all matters relating to welfare and the well being of both active and retired fishermen and their families. Their contact information is: Freephone 0800 6341020 or landline 01489 566910; e-mail: or via their website: by using the Need Help button.
