Coronavirus - RSC

Managing the impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19)



On behalf of everyone at the Royal Society of Chemistry, I would like to extend my thoughts and sympathy if you are one of the many RSC members around the world affected by the ever-changing Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation.

At this difficult time I would like to remind you about support available from the Chemists’ Community Fund, the benevolent fund for RSC members.

If current events are having a negative financial impact on you, your partner or dependants – especially if they have led to changes in your regular income – please contact us.

While we recognise that the support we can offer will be limited, we may be able to offer you financial assistance as a Royal Society of Chemistry member.

If you would like to discuss or request financial support, the Fund offers a completely confidential service. Please get in touch by phoning +44 (0)1223 432227, or by emailing us.

The team can talk through the application process and our specialist caseworkers may be able to point you in the direction of other avenues of support.

Sent with our best wishes.

Helen Pain
Acting CEO, Royal Society of Chemistry
