Jubilee Sailing Trust
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is a charity that changes lives through adventure and exploration onboard its tall ship, SV Tenacious.
JST’s voyages are for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, giving everyone the opportunity to explore their potential through inclusive adventures at sea. Its tall ship, Tenacious, is the only sea-going tall ship in the world designed, built and sailed by a mixed-ability crew. Voyage Crew become immersed in an unforgettable sailing experience, whether they’re a novice or experienced sailor. Onboard, everyone has a role to play; everyone is given real responsibilities that have real consequences.
The JST is a charity and relies on the support of others through fundraising and donations. They welcome people of all abilities, including disabled people, those with mental health conditions or long-term ill-health issues, and the socially isolated.
The Mission to Seafarers
Around the world, The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million men and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.
The Mission to Seafarers work in over 260 ports caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through a global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers they offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship visits, drop-in centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.
Piracy, shipwreck, abandonment and separation from loved ones are just a few of the problems merchant seafarers face. In an emergency, the MtS is often the only help on offer. No matter what problem a seafarer is facing, be it injury, abandonment, non-payment of wages or personal difficulties, they know they can turn to the local Mission for help, advice and support.
The Mission to Seafarers was founded in 1856 and is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
