ISWAN is a network of international organisations committed to improving the welfare of seafarers. Our members reflect the diversity present in the shipping industry today, and include important organisations such as the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), the International Christian Maritime Association (ICMA), and the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF). From shipping companies to unions, insurance groups to welfare organisations, our members possess a wealth of different experience and include key influencers in the field of seafarers’ welfare.
Seafarers are the lifeblood of the shipping industry and every maritime organisation can help to ensure seafarers have access to the best facilities and working conditions on board and in port. Through ISWAN membership, organisations can find out what more they can do to improve the lives of seafarers.
