Here at the Felixstowe & Haven Ports Seafarers Services (FHPSS) we endeavour to give Seafarers respite from some of the hardships they endure whilst at sea.

A Warm welcome to our seafarer friends... 

  The Felixstowe Haven Ports Seafarers Service (FHPSS) is one of many organisations including the Port of Felixstowe that looks out for the well-being of Seafarers. FHPSS offers the simplest of support which is usually just a break from the ship routine right through to full on support which may involve spiritual, ship mediation or help to contact home.
