Pharmacist Support is an independent, trusted charity, providing a wide variety of support services to pharmacists and their families, former pharmacists and pharmacy students.
We’ve listened carefully to people from all sectors of the profession, and deeply empathise with the issues affecting pharmacy today. In our 2019 market research 97% of all potential service users surveyed felt they needed some form of support from the charity with 71% of all respondents citing mental health as a key issue affecting the sector.
We believe in better! We listen, without judgement, and encourage and empower people to create positive change. Each year we provide thousands of acts of support – we make good things happen.
Our connection to the profession is deep. Established by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain (RPSGB) in 1841, the organisation has grown from its Benevolent Fund roots into a modern day charity.
We’re proud to be able to support people from such a caring profession, and we’ll never give up on what we like to call our pharmacy ‘family’.
No one in our pharmacy family will face challenging times without us by their side

In 2019 we conducted a review of our activities, spent time engaging with stakeholders and carried out market research with the profession. This provided us with invaluable insight and we used this information to inform the future direction of the charity and develop our new 5 year strategy. CLICK HERE to view our 2020 – 2025 strategy.
