The Fishermen’s Mission reaches out to both active and retired fishermen by providing practical, spiritual and financial support – as well as offering vital emergency response service for accidents or loss at sea.
We’re the only national charity that works solely to help fishermen and their families, and for over 130 years of service, the Fishermen’s Mission has stayed true to our Christian calling with a strong tradition and proud heritage.
Our Mission is to make a positive difference to the lives of active or retired fishermen and their families. We have a presence around the whole of the UK coastline. We are a trusted presence in the UK fishing ports.
We can provide practical, financial and pastoral support to anyone who has been a commercial fisherman and their families. We do this in a number of different ways. We can provide emergency financial help, support with budgeting and planning or signposting to longer term help with health, well being and the practicalities of keeping a home together. We offer a 24/7 emergency support to fishermen who have an accident or are taken ill at sea, and if the worst should happen we will be there to offer bereavement support and assistance.
Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.
