Human Rights at Sea has published its latest Corporate Profile Document covering the charity's fourth year of work in the global maritime sector spanning the shipping and fishing industries, refugee and migrant issues and emerging business and human rights development areas.

Supported by an ever-increasing large number of diverse national and international organizations and individuals from across the maritime environment, the charity continues to flourish and remains continuously delivering against its charitable objectives.

The document outlines the organization, its structure and work areas, the trustees and team, its programs as well as some personal reflections from a number of supporting individuals.

Commodore Barry Bryant CVO RN, Director General, Seafarers UK, says: “Over the past year Human Rights at Sea has successfully brought fundamental seafarers’ rights issues to the attention of a wider audience than ever before.  The detailed list of achievements from David Hammond and his small but very dedicated team is impressive by any standards, bringing home the scale of the worldwide problem and shining a light on some of the darkest aspects of maritime life.  

“Ongoing support from Seafarers UK continues to play a part in the development of welcome new HRAS initiatives, alongside essential maintenance of key projects such as the Missing Seafarers & Fishers Reporting Programme.  Sadly the need is undiminished for seafarers’ human rights to be respected wherever they may sail, and we would encourage others to join us in support of increased investment in the vital work of HRAS in 2018."

The Corporate Profile Document is available here.
