Community Pharmacy in IrelandMaking a difference in the Community
An IPU-led initiative
Safe Pharmacy involves community pharmacies providing a person who is experiencing domestic abuse with access to a phone and contact details for local support services. This enables them to make that important call e.g. to a family member, local specialist domestic violence services or An Garda Síochána. Pharmacies that sign up to the initiative nominate a Safe Pharmacy champion within the pharmacy.
