ITF maritime official to head Seafarers’ Trust

11 May 2018

The new head of the ITF Seafarers’ Trust is to be Katie Higginbottom. Katie has worked as an official in the ITF’s London head offices for 13 years, most recently as projects and campaigns leader in the maritime section. She will replace Tomas Abrahamsson, who has been acting head of the trust.

The ITF-funded trust runs projects that directly benefit individual seafarers’ spiritual, moral or physical welfare. It provides services to maritime workers, invests in long-term programmes to improve the health and wellbeing of seafarers and their families, and acts as a catalyst for positive change in the maritime community.
