About us

The Swedish Seamen's Service is a division of the Swedish Maritime Administration.
The commitment is to initiate, coordinate and carry out cultural and leisure activities for seafarers, according to the ILO-convention MLC 2006 (Maritime Labour Covention 2006). We maintain a close cooperation with Nordic sister organizations, mainly in the fields of port service, sports and film distribution.

In our recreation facilities – the seamen clubs – we offer modern communication possibilities, arrange sports activities and can help with transports and currency exchange. These facilities are located in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Norrköping. In Malmö we can be found in the municipal sports facility Kockum Fritid. We also have a field representative in Antwerp.
