Care Ashore was established in 1920 as The Merchant Seaman's War Memorial SocietyCare Ashore was established in 1920 as The Merchant Seaman's War Memorial Society after Havelock Wilson, the founder and president of the National Union of Seamen (NUS) recognised that there was a need to provide help for merchant seafarers.

He campaigned and highlighted awareness throughout the country, successfully raising funds, gaining the support of one main benefactor, Mr Henry Radcliffe, who was a shipping company owner.

Today Care Ashore continues to offer support to seafarers and provides both sheltered housing with support, and holidays to anyone who has served in either the Merchant and Royal Navies, plus the fishing fleets may apply for accommodation or a holiday.
