The Fishermen’s Mission

The Fishermen’s Mission is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care. We help all fishermen, active or retired, and their families.

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.Our strong tradition and proud heritage has seen us stay true to our Christian calling for over 130 years.We care for our fishermen and their families in the most practical of ways whilst continuing to offer spiritual and emotional support, as well as maintaining our vital emergency response service.
