Who We Are

The Benevolent Fund supports those who are or have been associated with pharmacy and who are now in need of assistance. The funds are put to a wide variety of uses to improve the basic quality of life of those in need.

Lack of provision for the inevitable event of retirement, or the unexpected events of being unable to work due to serious illness or premature death of a working spouse, are the primary reasons people need assistance from the Benevolent Fund.

While the typical beneficiary may be an elderly widow of a pharmacist living alone, there are many other kinds of people who require help. Some may find it difficult to believe, but there are many in the profession, or associated with it, which are affected by poor health or have fallen on hard times. They need our assistance.

It is important to remember that the Benevolent Fund considers cases not alone from Pharmacists and their families, but also those from the Pharmaceutical Industry and others working in pharmacy

The Pharmacy Benevolent Fund is on the journey to compliance with The Governance Code for Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations.

All of the directors are pharmacists.
