Mission To Seafarers Recognised

An honour for the Mission to Seafarers, Newcastle

The 2015 International Seafarers’ Welfare Awards, showcasing excellence in the provision of seafarers’ welfare, took place on 9th June at the International Maritime Organisation in London.

The shortlists for the awards were announced by the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN), including the award for the Seafarer Centre of the Year.

The top five Seafarer Centres nominated included the Mission to Seafarers in Newcastle, Australia.

Importantly, the Seafarer Centre of the Year was nominated directly by seafarers themselves.

This is a great affirmation of the good work being done by the team of chaplains and volunteers at the Mission to Seafarers in Newcastle as they care for seafarers from around the world who visit our port.
