The Fishermen’s Mission fights poverty and despair in our fishing communities by providing emergency and welfare support to fishermen and their families 24 hours a day
Fishermen's Mission - New Brand, New Era
The Fishermen's Mission are a charity with a significant and loyal support base.
The charity has recently undergone a significant re-branding exercise, it has been important that the new style has received a very positive reception from staff and volunteers, the sheer volume of printed materials that the charity uses has meant that it has taken a couple of years to update, re-design and print all the items required.
This has also allowed time for a review of the text and images as well as how user friendly each item is.
In 1881, the Fishermen’s Mission (also known as the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen – RNMDSF) began its work by going out in a fleet of boats under the banner of ‘Preach the Word, Heal the Sick’ offering food and medical supplies.
The fishing industry has undergone many changes over the years and the Fishermen’s Mission has always responded accordingly. The Mission established large accommodation centres to provide a safe place for fishermen to rest or stay when their boats came in, often many miles from home. Some of these centres had more than 100 beds.
However, many fishermen now fish from their home ports or have sleeping facilities on board. So changing once again with the times, we now provide 24-hour ‘mini-centres’ with good facilities and welfare offices covering the coastline of the UK.
