The Seafarer Centre in Southampton supports all the seafarers coming into the port of Southampton. Due to the coronavirus some seafarers have been stuck at sea for over a year now. The seafarer centre is a safe location for seafarers to come to. The befriender role is to meet and greet seafarers, make cups of tea, tell them a bit about Southampton and overall be a nice person who can offer a lovely welcome environment, as the centre could be the first place they have come to in many months.
