Liverpool Seafarers Center (LSC) in the UK has been named the world’s best seafarer center at an awards ceremony held during London International Shipping Week.

LSC, which is based in Crosby and Eastham, won the International Seafarer Welfare Award due to “the exceptional care it offers visiting seafarers and their families”. The Seafarer Center of the Year is voted for by seafarers, 50,000 of whom use the center’s services in Liverpool and along the River Mersey every year. This includes providing emotional support, including the services of a clinical psychologist, for those finding life too difficult to handle in normal talks. It also offers practical assistance, including access to WIFI, money exchange and a physical base on land for crew members whose vessels have docked in the city.
