The Shefarers of Ipswich Project

In June 2023 the Education and Charity Committee supported an application from the Spill Festival and awarded a grant of £1,000 to support the Shefarers of Ipswich project.  The objectives of the project were:

  • Profiling and advocating for local women in the maritime sector
  • Forging new local networks for women living and working on the water
  • Seeding new mentoring relationships and employment pathways for young women considering maritime careers
