Chemists' Community Fund

The Chemists' Community Fund (working name of the Royal Society of Chemistry Benevolent Fund) assists with grants for members of the Royal Society of Chemistry and their dependents who are in need. Applicants normally must have been members for the last 3 years, or ex-members. Our grants can help towards essential living costs, home maintenance, respite care and household appliances. We offer support in a number of areas including befriending, legal advice, benefits advice and counselling.

Information for volunteers

If you are a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and are interested in volunteering for the Fund, we have three roles to choose from:
- Visitors
- Local Section Coordinators
- Ambassadors
We are always looking to expand the number of Ambassadors and we currently have Visitor and Coordinator vacancies in certain areas of the UK.
