Brisbane Marine Pilots values its close links to our community and honour this through our contributions to local charities and organisations that promote improving the lives and protections of this great region. We are proud of the strong links we have developed over the years that provide welfare for our visiting seafarers, encouraging women in the maritime industry and protection of our local environment.
The Mission to Seafarers provides help and support to the 1.5 million crewmen and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat.
Formed in 1974, the Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA International) is a global organisation connecting female executives and decision-makers around the world.
The Australian Marine Environment Protection Association (AUSMEPA) are committed to protecting Australia's precious marine environment.
We are committed to assisting our local community groups in any way that we can.
Each year the Mission to Seafarers Brisbane, Inc welcomes over 17,000 seafarers to their centre. The Centre provides an opportunity to catch a bus to a local shopping centre, purchase essentials from our store or simply relax with a game of ping-pong or paint a picture in our art centre. The Centre also gives seafarers an opportunity to re-connect with their faith in the chapel or speak to one of the Reverends who tend to our visitors. The Centre is overseen by 2 supervisors, with volunteers helping each and every day to offer assistance and comfort to those far from home.
