Who we are
We train healthcare professionals in contraception and sexual health. We partner with other environmental and health organisations, to improve sexual and reproductive health services, provide livelihoods and conserve biodiversity. We change biodiversity and climate policy to support reproductive choice.
Margaret Pyke Trust is a unique global non-governmental organisation embedded in the human health, biodiversity and climate sectors. We train healthcare professionals around the world in sexual and reproductive health. In the UK, we train more clinicians in contraceptive and sexual health than anyone else. Internationally, we work in partnership with other environmental conservation and health organisations, to develop projects which simultaneously improve sexual and reproductive health services, provide livelihoods and support the conservation of biodiversity. We use our unique status and expertise to change biodiversity and climate policy to support reproductive choice.
Vision – Our vision is a future without barriers to family planning, in a climate resilient world with healthy ecosystems.
Mission – We accelerate the work of the health sector, to ensure everyone who wants contraception can access it, by changing policy, building partnerships and providing training.

We are seeking individuals who will bring energy, enthusiasm and commitment to the role, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our Board. Previous trustee experience is not necessary and we welcome trustees who can bring a diversity of life experiences, knowledge and expertise
The Treasurer will maintain an overview of the Trust’s financial affairs, ensuring that effective and appropriate financial measures, controls and procedures are put in place and reports to the Board at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation.
