  • Mission statement

    Pharmacist Support is an independent charity for pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists and pharmacy students in Great Britain. Our range of free and confidential services include a stress helpline, addiction support, financial assistance, debt, benefits and employment advice as well as information and enquiry service.

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

    The organisation is proud of its long history (which dates back to 1841) of providing valuable help and support to pharmacists. Since that time, it has provided a lifeline for members of the profession who, through circumstances often beyond their control – personal illness, disability or other life changing events - have required much needed help and assistance. This has been provided in many formats specifically tailored to the individual’s circumstances and requirements on a short or long-term basis dependent on need. The organisation relies heavily on individual donations and legacies for baseline income and also maintains portfolio as surety.
