Share Seminar on Cruise Ships & Seafarers' Welfare

Event Details

Cruise ship crews are different from those on other merchant ships. For a start there are far more seafarers on a cruise ship. Also, catering and 'hotel' staff on cruise ships are defined as seafarers and many of these are women. The services and facilities aimed at seafarers on cruise ships need to be adapted to meet their needs.

With the growth of the cruise ship sector the seminar will be looking at the welfare needs of seafarers aboard these vessels and how they can be met, both on board and in port. There will be speakers and participants from seafarer welfare organisations, shipping companies, ports, and maritime trade unions.

The seminar is open to organisations and individuals interested in the welfare of seafarers.

Organiser

The International Seafarers' Welfare and Assistance Network

ISWAN works for the welfare of seafarers all over the world. We work in support of organisations and bodies that provide direct welfare services to seafarers. We work to enable the establishment of welfare facilities and services in port and on ships. ISWAN brings together and supports our members to share learning and experiences to improve seafarers' welfare both onboard and ashore. In particular, ISWAN works for the implementation of the ILO Maritime Labour Convention 2006. We work with companies, unions, governments, welfare organisations (secular and faith based), and ports for the benefit of seafarers' welfare.

ISWAN also provides direct welfare services to seafarers. The 24-hour multilingual helpline, SeafarerHelp, runs every day of the year and is free for seafarers to call from anywhere in the world. ISWAN provides other services, including an emergency welfare fund for seafarers and their families in dire need, information to benefit the mental and physical health of seafarers, and up-to-date information on the location of seafarer centres and the services they provide.
