You are not alone: why seafarers can and should turn for help

From helping to get crews home to providing seafarers with a welfare app, the Red Ensign Group continues to keep driving forward care of those who work at sea.

Many of those working within the group which is made up of the 13 British Shipping Registries, have worked at sea for months on end themselves so bring a real understanding of how life can be for seafarers to their roles.

We've brought together five of those people - James Hatcher from the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry, James Robba from Gibraltar Maritime Administration, David Gooberman from the Isle of Man Ship Registry  and Richard Pellew and Ian Blair from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency in the UK.
