If your luck is down and you have links to the shore based maritime sector in Scotland, please contact us – the chances are, peace of mind is just a step away.
We can provide one-off lump sums or ongoing financial support to SSBA members, appropriate indivduals and/or their families for many different reasons including redundancy, financial hardship, illness or death.
Beneficiaries can be young or old, single or a family, unemployed or employed. Each case is simply checked alongside our Regulations and will be assessed sensitively and confidentially as to its own particulars by our Board of Directors.
Stuck in a rut? The SSBA assists people to fulfill their potential by awarding grants for training and education within maritime related disciplines.
Additionally, the SSBA provides hardship funding to individuals indirectly through other maritime related charities including the Scottish Nautical Welfare Society.
