Use ITF seafarers' index to find out  if there is a seafarer centre in the port. Seafarers' centres can provide advice, someone to  talk to, facilities to contact home and a place where you can relax away from the ship.

On Friday 15th October 2021 the ITF launched its Seafarers’ Welfare Centre Index page on the ITF Seafarers website.

The index lists almost 400 welfare centres from around the world and provides information on their location, contact details and available facilities.  We are still working to populate some of the information but in time we are confident that this will become the most comprehensive index of welfare centres available to the world’s seafarers.

If you identify any new or updated information, please email this to
