There are many opportunities for volunteers to assist the team at The Mission to Seafarers on a wide range of tasks.

You might like to chat to visiting Seafarers in the Flying Angel Club, serve drinks to our regulars and visitors, or use your research skills to assist the heritage team. Perhaps a morning pottering in the garden, or an evening lending a hand at one of our many functions and events interests you. Utilise your IT skills, clean the windows, or even help out with fundraising. If you like to drive, we’re always looking for people to hop in one of our shuttle buses and pick up Seafarers from the docks.

If you have skills to share and a passion for the welfare of others, we’d love to hear from you.

Fill out and return the Volunteer Application Form and we’ll let you know how best you can assist us.

Knit for us!

Imagine getting on a ship in summer in the Philippines, dressed in shorts and t-shirt. Soon you find yourself transiting freezing Arctic waters with only your overalls to keep you warm. Seafarers often set out on new contracts not knowing where their ship will end up or what climates they will travel through, and they may need to stock up on warm clothes to see them through some of the chillier parts of the globe.
We are always grateful for gifts of warm knitted items which our chaplains can pass on to seafarers in need.

If you can supply balaclavas, scarves, gloves and hats in any colours, we would love to hear from you.
You can have a look at some of our suggested Seafarer Knitting Patterns, or you can design your own!

Please send your knitted items to us at:
