QVSR provides a secure, comfortable and homely living environment for retired and non-active seafarers. Short term accommodation is also available for active seafarers whether they are transferring between ships or just visiting London.

Active and retired seafarers are always given priority with regards to accommodation.

Grants from the MNWBSeafarers UKITF, and Trinity House assisted in the creation of a dedicated Maritime Wing called “Seafarers Wharf” in 2012.

We act as an agent for Shipwrecked Mariners assisting resident and non–resident seafarers and their dependents with individual maritime grants, and also host monthly outreach sessions for SAIL (Seafarers Advice and Information Line).
