Illness, stress, bereavement and unemployment can affect all of us at some stage in our life. Take a look at our case studies to see how we've supported your colleagues and peers in need.
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 to help them manage their day-to-day wellbeing and provide a safety net should 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.
Impact through our Support Services
Despite the challenges presented during the pandemic, our team, alongside our committed volunteers, ensured that we continued to deliver our free and confidential support to assist those facing difficult times. In 2020, we provided over 1,500 acts of support through our services alone, this included:
- responding to 1,225 enquiries
- providing 92 grants totalling £76,715 to those experiencing financial difficulty
- making 221 referrals for specialist advice, supporting with employment, benefits and debt issues
- supporting 17 people with addiction issues.
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 and our newly developed Wardley Wellbeing Hub, we provided a whopping 10,107 acts of support. This is just a handful of the successes achieved by the charity in 2020 alone.
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 will require 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.
Your generosity helps us to make a difference
Our impact has only been possible with your support of the charity. We rely on charity partnerships and the generosity of people like you to continue making positive change for pharmacists and pharmacy students up and down the country. If you are in a position to do so, please consider making a donation to help us ensure no one in our pharmacy family has to face challenging times alone.
