A new working name for the Benevolent Fund
Last year, we began looking at ways to ensure that the Benevolent Fund could continue to be relevant for our modern community.
The objective of the Fund is to both relieve and prevent poverty through advice and guidance, financial assistance and volunteer support. For many people we spoke to, the name was seen as old-fashioned, and didn’t represent the non-financial support we offer.
On these pages, you’ll find information about the legal advice, counselling and intensive career services we provide, and over the course of 2016, we will be transitioning to our new working name of Chemists' Community Fund, a name that you thought a better reflection of the scope of our support.
By the end of the year, we will be using this name on all of the information that we share with you.
