Fishermen's Mission - Fleetwood

More than 13,000 people work in fishing: the UK's toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation.   At sea, they face death and injury with an average of 15 fishermen killed or seriously injured every year. On land, many struggle with insecurity and debt. And for the 50,000 retired fishermen and their families, the fishing may have ended but the hardship continues as they face debt, scant savings, loneliness and social isolation. The Fishermen's Mission is a lifeline for many and plays a vital role in fighting poverty and despair in our fishing communities. We do this by providing emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Here are just some of the ways we can help: Providing immediate assistance to the families of fishermen who have been killed or injured.  Looking after survivors of fishing boat accidents by finding medical help, a bed for the night or providing a hot meal and dry clothes. Supporting fishermen's families during illness, distress or financial problems.  Alleviating loneliness by visiting retired fishermen and their families at home or in hospital. Offering welfare and support to all fishermen working in the UK fishing industry.  

Providing Christian pastoral and practical help with problems such as debt, sickness and bereavement as well as helping to pay bills, buy food and keep house and home together. If you're a fisherman and you need our help, just contact us at the address below.
