Registered Charity No: 209776 (England & Wales).

The Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society is a maritime charity which since 1865 has provided a ‘safe haven’ for elderly, sick or disabled former seafarers, their widows and dependants.

Our flagship home within the idyllic rural surroundings of the Weston Acres Estate near Banstead, Surrey, provides seafarers from all over the UK with a full range of nursing and respite care, residential care, including sheltered flats, and now, specialised dementia care, all on one site.

Each donation, legacy and grant we receive helps us to continue providing this high quality care. This includes the UK’s first specialist dementia care unit for seafarers, which opened at the home in July 2011. The centre caters for up to 36 residents living with the condition and offers high quality facilities, trained staff, a sensory garden and range of specialist therapies designed to enhance quality of life.

How little or how much help the Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society provides depends on residents’ specific needs, whether it’s 24-hour assistance, or an attractive, supportive environment for independent living. And there are plenty of other things for our residents to enjoy, from our fulfilling calendar of activities, social events and day trips, to our landscaped gardens, communal areas and on-site bar.

Each day, we see the difference we make in the lives of people who have given so much in service of their country and now turn to the Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society to serve them. We rely on your kind donations to ensure we keep making that difference.
