We rely on donations from those in the profession in order to continue our work.
Pharmacist Support is an independent charity for pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists and pharmacy students. Our free and confidential support includes, a stress helpline, addiction support, a wellbeing service, debt, benefits and employment advice, an information service, careers coaching and financial assistance for those experiencing hardship.
Since its relaunch in 2008 (from The Benevolent Fund), the charity has provided over 10,000 acts of support to pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists, trainees and MPharm students in need. This support has included dealing with over 3,500 enquiries, over 160 addiction cases, over 1,000 specialist advice referrals (for debt, benefits and employment advice) and providing over £1.6m in financial assistance to those experiencing hardship and over 2,000 calls to those dealing with a range of stressful situations.
As demands upon the profession increase, it’s likely that demand for our assistance will also grow.
We will use your money to continue to provide our support to pharmacists, former pharmacists, students of pharmacy, pre-registration trainees and their families for as long as it’s needed.
