Seafarers’ Advice & Information Line (SAIL) is the only Citizens Advice service dedicated to seafarers across the UK.
SAIL can now give free advice to serving and veteran Royal Navy and Royal Marines, and their partners. We can also help ex-partners of seafarers when they’re caring for the children of a seafarer. Advice is given by phone, email or letter. All advice is free, fast and confidential.
SAIL can give advice on all of these and many more:
- Debts and money problems
- Maritime charity grants
- Family-related issues
All SAIL’s advisers are professional and fully trained, and used to dealing with seafarers so know the problems that can be faced. SAIL is independent from the government, and from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
There are various ways to get advice. You can contact a SAIL adviser in any of these ways:
- Call 08457 413 318 or 020 3597 1580 between 10 and 4 on weekdays. You can request an immediate call back if the call is expensive for you. There’s an answer phone service at other times.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use the contact page on the SAIL website
