In 2006 the Maritime Charities Funding Group (MCFG) commissioned four independent research teams to undertake this seminal piece of research. They were: Insight Social Research working with ORS, the Marine Society and Sea Cadets, the National Children’s Bureau and the Working Lives Research Institute at London Metropolitan University.
