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. We do this by:

  • Offering immediate assistance, day or night, to the families of fishermen who have been killed or seriously injured
  • Looking after the survivors of fishing boat accidents· Helping injured or ill fishermen to find medical help· Finding emergency housing and food if necessary
  • Supporting fishermen’s families in the case of illness, distress or financial difficulties·
  • Alleviating loneliness by visiting retired fishermen and their families at home or in hospital
  • Offering welfare and support to overseas fishermen, working in the UK fishing industry, especially those who have to live onboard boats· Providing Christian pastoral and practical help, including problems with debt, sickness, bereavement, family difficulties, debt and addiction problems.
