A campaign for seafarers
How are you? Who are you? What makes you?
International maritime charity Sailors’ Society has spent years helping seafarers and their families to enjoy better wellbeing. Now, Inchcape Shipping Services has signed up to its Wellness at Sea Awareness Campaign to help you too.
Sailors’ Society would like to invite you on a journey exploring wellbeing, sharing mental health and wellness information, advice and support with you, your colleagues and families. Lots of companies will also be running the campaign with their staff at the same time, so there will be a real sense of community.
Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea Awareness Campaign is all about you – you are extremely valuable! Not only do you play a vital part in world trade, but you are important to your family, your community and your company.
Through the campaign, Sailors’ Society hope to:
- Empower you by explaining basic principles of wellbeing, exploring some of the most common challenges seafarers face and giving you the tools to navigate these in a positive way.
- Support you, because we know that life at sea can get tough, and having someone to turn to for support can make all the difference. There is a wealth of resources out there that you can turn to in difficult times – for example Sailors’ Society’s helplines and chaplaincy service, which offer free support and advice to seafarers.
- Support and build your community, because no seafarer is an island. You are connected to other people who influence you in your work and personal life. You depend on them and they depend on you. For us, supporting and investing in your family and the shore staff taking care of you is important, because we are confident that it can give you peace of mind while being at sea.
