Additional wellbeing support
Wellbeing and listening service
If you need further wellbeing support or someone to talk to, we can provide you with additional support. As a chemical scientist based in the UK or Ireland you can call our wellbeing and listening service on 0800 084 3451 (UK Freephone) or +44 1223 853549 (International). The phone line is available from 8am to 8pm (UK time) Monday – Friday and all calls are confidential.
Our services are completely confidential.
Support for new graduates
It’s rare for someone to immediately find a job in their specialist field after graduating, and many people find themselves searching for longer than they hoped. Breathing space grants give you the time you need to find the role your skills deserve. Contact us for further information.
Chemists’ Community Fund
The Chemists’ Community Fund provides members of the Royal Society of Chemistry and their family with confidential support around their wellbeing, finances, legal advice and careers.
