Welcome to the The Seafarers' Charity's Grant Application portal.


Our grant round for The Seafarers' Charity's own Main Fund Programme, The International Fund for Fishing Safety, and the Merchant Navy Fund opened in January 2024 and runs until December 2024. We look forward to receiving your applications through this new portal.

If you have applied to us in the past, please enter the email used last time, and select "change password" from the Home screen to set up a new password to activate your account. Step-by-step guidance is available on our website on the Apply for Funding page to assist you with successfully completing the form. You will be able to start a draft and return to it at a later date but when it is complete please ensure you hit the Submit button to formally apply. Please note that once you have submitted your application you will not be able to make any changes to the final version so please make sure you have communicated with the relevant member of the Impact Team to ensure your application is ready. After submission, you will receive an immediate acknowledgement of your application and notification that we will shortly be in touch to request extra documents that we require for due diligence purposes.

If you have any problems in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email on impact@theseafarerscharity.org and we can arrange a call to answer any questions.

The next Impact Committee meeting for The Seafarers' Charity and Merchant Navy Fund grants is in mid-July 2024 so any applications started after the 24th June 2024 will be considered in our next grant round in November 2024.

The inaugural Grants Committee meeting for the International Fund for Fishing Safety grants was in May 2024 and the first grant has been confirmed. New applications are welcome on a rolling basis but please contact our IFFS Coordinator, Alan McCulla on alan.mcculla@theseafarerscharity.org for guidance before you start an application.

Thanks from all on the Impact Team.
