Dear Supporter,

Welcome to the first edition of Seapost in 2019!

We're pleased to report that over the past year our grant-funding programme supported over 60 maritime organisations and projects with total funding of £2.5 million. Read more below about our work in 2018 and how you could access grant funding for your organisation or project which supports seafarers and/or their families.

We have exciting plans for the year ahead with many opportunities for you to get involved with the work of Seafarers UK. Make every mile count at this year's Virgin Money London Marathon, hike 24 Peaks in 24 hours, or choose your own challenge - and help us to continue our support for people across the maritime community.

Best wishes,
Laura Gineitaite, Editor
