Britannia P&I Club has made a significant donation to support the work and activities of ISWAN, following a commitment by Britannia in response to its recent Members’ satisfaction survey.
ISWAN is an international maritime charity which works to improve the lives of seafarers around the world with services, resources, strategies and advocacy. As well as operating a 24-hour helpline as a direct service for seafarers, ISWAN also runs a number of other projects and campaigns in support of seafarers' welfare. Britannia is in the process of becoming an official member of ISWAN.
Britannia is a regular supporter of various charities focused on helping to support seafarers and their families around the world. Since late 2020 the Club has also run an award-winning online safety campaign entitled BSafe. The aim of BSafe is to support its Members’ seafarers through a dedicated website providing best practice information and the latest thinking on onboard safety and security as well as advice on physical and mental wellbeing.
The Britannia Members’ survey was undertaken towards the end of 2022 with Britannia pledging a donation to a charity supporting seafarers for every response received. Almost 60% of Britannia Members submitted survey responses.
