Society calls for 'benefit to be construed in the widest sense'

 

 

The Society of Homeopaths in responding to the Charitiy Commission's consultation on organisations promoting CAM, has called for a holistic approach to assessing benefit "benefit must be construed in the widest and most holistic sense.... any evidence of benefit should simply need to be plausible rather than conclusive as the latter would support that scientific validity in a prerequisite of a charity, which it is not"

Elsewhere in the submission the Society called for a variety of types of research and evidence to be used as well as a broad definition of the concept of public benefit. It also highlighted CAM's popularity within the general population and its official endorsement by many governments around the world.

As part of their consultation the Charity Commission held two small workshops to discuss the issue. Attendees included Mark Taylor, CEO of the Society of Homeopaths and Simon Singh, leader of the skeptic movement.

Sue Crump, interim chair of the Society's new Communications Committee, welcomed the Commission's openness but felt it unfortunate that this review had been prompted by the mischievous actions of a small group of ill-informed campaigners. "Nevertheless, we welcome the opportunity to highlight the fantastic work undertaken by CAM charities, the evidence of their effectiveness and the huge public benefit they bring".
