Seafarers UK and Merchant Navy Welfare Board MIFI Project.

It is with pleasure that we can acknowledge that the project is now jointly co-funded by the Department for Transport, Seafarers UK and the MNWB. We thank them for the continued funding of 6 S.C.F.S. MiFi units and connections through the UK Port Welfare MiFi Partnership project.

The aim of the project is to ultimately improve visiting seafarers'connectivity and provide secure reliable access to the internet whilst in UK ports.

The project plans to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To provide as many seafarers visiting UK ports with access to high speed internet via MiFi devices.
  2. To improve port-based welfare services and therefore seafarers' welfare & wellbeing.
  3. To obtain feedback from seafarers and ship welfare visitors on the project and value of connectivity.
  4. To effectively monitor and report on the partnership project.
