The Blackie Foundation Trust was founded by Dr. Margery Blackie in 1971, when she was homeopathic physician to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Through the Trust, Dr. Blackie aimed to promote homeopathy to a wider audience and educate the public about successful homeopathic treatment of illness. Her intent was also to use the Trust to train doctors in homeopathy, so that it became available to as many people as possible.
Today, there is a growing demand for homeopathic medicine in Great Britain; however, homeopathy has always been controversial. The Blackie Foundation Trust aims to support trials in clinical and scientific research into its mode of action. For a list of past research, please click here.
The Trust has helped fund research projects in hospitals and universities in London, Liverpool, Surrey, Glasgow and Bristol; and by individual practitioners throughout the country. Grants and bursaries have also been awarded to doctors studying for qualifications in homeopathy recognised by the Faculty of Homeopathy and to attend post graduate educational events.
