The Merchant Navy Association
People from all over the world came through Liverpool to be shipped out to the new world and so the Liverpool tradition of Seafarers was born. Situated right in the heart of Liverpool docklands, Liverpool Seafarers Centre extends the hand of friendship to thousands of seafarers every year. We are a charity operating a frontline service to provide practical and emotional support for seafarers. It has indeed shaped many lives bringing in commodities from America.
Today Seascope Maritime Training is continuing this tradition of training and placing Liverpool Seafarers into opportunities. Over 10 years 2,700 Local Seafarers have been given jobs at sea.
The Michael Causer Foundation
Michael Causer was a young man of just 18, whose life was taken just because he was gay. The Michael Causer Foundation was set up by his parents, Marie and Mike, and Merseyside’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community. Their aim, to provide education, motivation and accommodation for young LGBT people like their son. The foundation is pleased to be recognised and supported by the Lord Mayor in the 10th year since Michael’s death.
