Pharmacist Support (formerly The Benevolent Fund of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain) is an independent charity for pharmacists and their families, pre-registration trainees and pharmacy students providing help and support in times of need.

Their support services include a variety of programmes developed in consultation with pharmacists to offer a helping hand to colleagues who find themselves confronted by difficult circumstances, for whatever reason.

Services provided include:

  • Listening Friends - a free listening service for pharmacists suffering from stress
  • Specialist Advice Services - in the areas of benefits, debt and employment law
  • The Health Support Programme - helps pharmacists who experience problems with alcohol, drug, or other types of dependency
  • Financial Assistance
  • Information and Signposting

Some of their services are delivered directly by experienced volunteer pharmacists located throughout Great Britain. Because there is a shared professional background, volunteers are uniquely able to understand the specific pressures affecting pharmacists and their families.
