ROI Pharmacy Benevolent Fund

The Pharmacy Benevolent Fund supports people in the Republic of Ireland 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.

The Benevolent Fund also helps pharmacists; people from the pharmaceutical industry; others working in pharmacy; and their families., who are in need and live in the Republic of Ireland.

Support may include:

  •     Providing regular monthly grants
  •     Giving extra financial assistance at certain times of the year like Christmas or help with large bills, for example, heating, medical expenses and house repairs
  •     Helping individuals to avail of their full social welfare entitlements
  •     Assisting with arrangements for home help, nursing homes and organising financial affairs
  •     Referring people to specialist services if needed
  •     Offering the hand of friendship to those who are lonely and need more than financial help.

The charity's part-time social worker, Mary Dowd, is the face of the Benevolent Fund and deals with each person on a one-to-one basis, offering whatever help and support that they need.
