The mental health of sailors is suffering as they are forced to remain aboard their ships for weeks while docked in Australian ports.
Sailors are used to being stuck on ships for long periods of time, but the coronavirus pandemic has meant sailors are being quarantined on their ships instead of enjoying shore leave.
The job of looking after the sailors during these difficult times and making sure they have what they need while in floating isolation falls to volunteer organisation Mission to Seafarers.
The group is an international mission with four centres in Victoria, including one inside the Port of Portland.
Portland local branch manager Neville Manson and his team of volunteers work all year providing support to visiting sailors through their shop at the port and a shuttle bus service which takes the seafarers to and from town.
