November 2019

Dear Supporter,

Universal Children's Day on 20 November marked the start of our Maritime Youth Appeal.

From boat-building and STEM workshops, to residential courses and Professional Yacht Cadetship training - the projects and organisations Seafarers UK supports each year, inspire and help our future seafarers build a safe career at sea.

Last year we awarded £460,436 in grant funding to help 35,333 young people access necessary training and education courses. But we need your help to continue supporting our maritime youth.

Best wishes,

Laura Gineitaite, Editor
