The Core Issues Trust offers harmful ‘conversion therapy’ to LGBT+ people. Sign this petition to end its charitable status.

Can you imagine a charity collecting taxpayer money to do something harmful to the people they claim to help?

That’s exactly what the Core Issues Trust does in the UK: They use taxpayers’ money to finance “conversion therapy” for LGBT+ people, a practice proved to be dangerous and damaging.

This approach is based on an assumption that being lesbian, gay, bi or trans is a mental illness that can be ‘cured’. His work is both unethical and harmful. In the UK, all major counselling and psychotherapy bodies, as well as the NHS, have concluded that conversion therapy is dangerous.

Core Issues Trust is registered as a UK Charity. This means that UK tax payers fork out 25p for every £1 that is donated to Mike Davison, the Director of this group.

This reprehensible organisation works with people who want to “free themselves” from what it calls “same sex attraction”. They describe themselves as ‘ a Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues’ and were the group behind the homophobic ads places on London buses.

Although many of us are currently forced to stay at home, we can still come together and be powerful as a community virtually.
