Our impact

As a forward-thinking charity, we measure our successes and impact every year to ensure our support remains relevant and useful.

We’ve been supporting our pharmacy family for over 180 years.

Today, we offer a wide variety of support services to pharmacists, former pharmacists, trainees and MPharm students across Great Britain. Our aim is to help them manage their day-to-day wellbeing and provide a safety net if they find themselves in crisis. As a forward-thinking charity, we measure our successes and impact every year to ensure our support remains relevant and useful.

  • dealt with 963 enquiries which resulted in 1,704 support outcomes
  • provided 114 grants totalling £107,901 to those experiencing financial difficulty

Impact through our ACTNow wellbeing campaign 

Working proactively to support wellbeing, back in May 2020 we developed and launched our first ever ACTNow wellbeing campaign. Through the campaign, MPharm students, trainees and pharmacists can access free and exclusive mental health and wellbeing information, guidance and support at key points in the pharmacy calendar.

Our impact on the environment

We recognise that the climate crisis is a global threat, impacting the health of our pharmacy family and the whole of humanity. Tackling this threat requires significant change and we believe we have a duty to do all we can to support the global effort that is required. As a charity, we believe we have a responsibility to act on climate change and are joining others across the profession to make a commitment to consider environmental sustainability across our work.
