The Mission to Seafarers aims to care for seafarers around the world, many of whom are away from home and at sea for weeks and months at a time. Travelling at sea can be a lonely and isolated occupation.
Arriving at ports far from home all too often means that seafarers go for months without the ability to see or speak to their families.
Part of the support the Mission to Seafarers offers to seafarers is to enable them to connect to the outside world whilst away from home. For this reason the Mission to Seafarers funded an innovative project to enable the Port of Workington to provide wireless internet access to all of their visitors.
