International Seafarers Help

Hunterlink began as a specialist welfare and support service for seafarers and maritime workers and we remain the leading Employee Assistance Provider for these unique workplaces.

We are members of the Australian Seafarers’ Welfare Council and the Port of Newcastle Welfare Committee, and take an active role in promoting the health and wellbeing of port workers, international seafarers and maritime workers.

Hunterlink works in a social partnership with the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF), with funding from the ITF Seafarers Trust, to provide early intervention, ongoing support and proactive outreach services to international seafarers while visiting Australia or working in remote locations.

Contact us now for International Seafarer Support

We know that long periods at sea and away from home and family can take their toll on the mental health and wellbeing of seafarers and their loved ones, so we provide a 24 hour service to seafarers wherever they may be.

Our 24/7 support service is available by phone and online via teleconferencing software or Instant Messaging apps, depending on the preference of individual seafarers.

All calls and text-message conversations are 100% confidential and secure. We also provide an interpreter service for seafarers who would prefer not to use English when speaking to our support staff.

Hunterlink is a world-leading EAP with a specialist International Maritime EAP model designed especially to help seafarers.

We understand the unique pressures and stress faced by maritime workers, and our services are tailor made to help workers in port, at sea or at home in between voyages. 

Seafarer Connect

We are proud to partner with Seafarer Connect, a project by the Tas Bull Seafarers Foundation, to deliver free WiFi to visiting seafarers at Australian Ports around the country.

This project aims to improve the mental health of seafarers by providing them with fast, reliable and free WiFi while their ship is at port so they can contact friends and family back home, download reading or viewing material for the long journey ahead, or access educational or religious resources without having to pay for international roaming or buy a local SIM card.
