Support Us

We are so appreciative of every piece of support we receive. Donations enable us to continue to provide this essential service to all Australian pharmacists.

Donations to PSS

The Pharmacists’ Support Service is a charity and has been granted deductible gift recipient status (DGR) and taxation concessions by the ATO. We welcome donations from the broader pharmacy profession.

Our main expenses are volunteer training, telephone expenses, staff (part-time), insurance and administration. As the service is provided by volunteers we have minimal infrastructure.

PSS has expanded from its Victorian base to all states and territories of Australia and is now a truly national service which provides support to pharmacists and pharmacy students and interns throughout Australia. PSS now requires adequate ongoing funding from the profession to support the continuing work of the service.

Volunteers wanted!

We work on a belief system that we can help each other out in times of need. If you would like to volunteer or learn more about what is involved, please contact us here today.

Our volunteers provide an essential service for pharmacists in need. Every volunteer is a pharmacist who receives training in the crisis model of telephone counselling to support their colleagues. Training and support for volunteers is provided by psychologists.

We would like to extend a huge Thank You to all our donors!
