|Freshwinds charity, established since 1992, supports adults and children with life-threatening and life-limiting health conditions and people who are socially excluded. This is achieved through a variety of programmes and projects (one of which is the Integrated Medicine Programme). The support is provided free of cost to our service users.
Freshwinds’ Integrated Medicine programme provides complementary therapies for adults and children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses. We follow an integrated medicine model of care whereby complementary therapies are combined with the client’s existing medical care that they are receiving from their GP / hospital. The underlying principle guiding our work is that of holistic care.
We have a variety of projects within the Integrated Medicine programme providing in-house and outreach services. Our integrated medicine team includes 3 doctors (as well as other volunteer doctors), 2 complementary therapy co-ordinators, an outreach assessor, volunteer therapists (up to 50), sessional therapists (up to 10), a research assistant and an admin assistant.
We have a commitment to the continuing professional development of our staff and volunteers. As such we have regular therapists’ meetings which incorporate elements of teaching (including guest speakers) and case discussions. We also offer other training opportunities such as Moving and Handling Training and Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Awareness Training.
Clients accessing the different integrated medicine projects have a variety of health problems. Our adult clients include, for example, people with cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV, SLE, palliative and end stage conditions. Our child clients include children with complex conditions, Down’s syndrome, developmental disorders, autism, genetic and chromosomal disorders and others. Clients initially undergo an holistic assessment, which includes a medical history as well as details of their psycho-emotional, family, relationships, financial and social circumstances. Following this a package of care is planned which includes not just complementary therapies but also referrals to other Freshwinds’ projects or external services depending on the client needs identified during the holistic assessment.

Our work so far
We work in partnership with Ghana Centre for Homeopathy and Natural health and local homeopaths in Accra to provide mobile clinics in slum areas. These also operate as training clinics for local students of homeopathy.
In Kumasi, the Northern city, we have begun working with Ghanaian homeopaths and a local Doctor to provide integrated health care and outreach clinics.
The UK team fund raises, provides resources, promotes the project, manages the project together with the trustees and partners in Ghana, and runs a volunteer programme to support and facilitate the aims.
The UK team is Linda Shannon, Grace Da Silva-Hill, Sheila Ryan and Angelika Metzger

Tony will use his extensive understanding of materia medica to illustrate some of the concepts arising out of the different methodologies and will weave a cohesive pattern from them all. Tony is one of the most experienced lecturers and practitioners in the UK.
There are so many schools of homeopathy each training students with a different approach but there is one thing they have in common and that is the desire to improve the health of the planet.

Sign up for our free quarterly newsletter
The HRI newsletter will allow you to keep up to date with key developments in homeopathy research effortlessly. Members of our Scientific Advisory Committee and guest authors take jargon-filled scientific papers from all areas of homeopathy research and translate them into these easy-to-read publications sent to you free of charge via email.
The institute is the first dedicated central resource of its kind and will be playing a pivotal role in the future of homeopathy research, but its work is entirely dependent on donations. We therefore welcome the invaluable contribution of new supporters.

The Maun Homeopathy Project
|Healing for Strength and Survival
MHP is a registered charity (No. 1109958) founded by Hilary Fairclough and Philippa Brewster in 2002:
A Community in Crisis
Since 2002, The Maun Homeopathy Clinic has been running free homeopathy outreach clinics in Maun, a fast growing town in the north of Botswana, where over 35% of the people are infected with HIV or AIDS, one of the highest rates in the world.
We are now recruiting for volunteers to work in Maun for 6 – 12 week stretches. The clinics, which treat people living with HIV and/or traumatised by rape, are firmly established in the community and the work we continue to do is challenging, rewarding and often inspiring. In Maun you would be involved in providing a service that makes a huge difference to individuals, seeing lives turned around and treating serious pathology which we rarely see in our private practices. It is an intense professional and personal development opportunity. Our best testament is that homeopaths who’ve already been there go back for more!
We have recently recruited 3 local people to be trainees in homeopathy. The School of Homeopathy in Devon has donated us places for them on their Distance Learning Course. We think this is an important and exciting development leading towards sustainability of the Project and contributing towards the creation of a firm homeopathic base in Botswana. If you decided to volunteer, your role would therefore involve supporting the trainees who will be interpreting in the clinics as part of their apprenticeship learning, and running weekly tutorials for them.
The charity does its utmost to prepare you before you go by running induction days, and to support you while you are there by providing personal telephone supervision from dedicated volunteer homeopath supervisors in the UK. You would also get regular telephone management support. Further there are key people in Maun who support the homeopaths when they are there.
At the moment we ask that volunteers pay for their own air fare which costs between £650 – £850 depending on the time of year. In the future we hope to have funds available to contribute towards your flight but meanwhile we would support you in an fundraising you might need to do before going. The charity pays for all your living expenses while you are there.
Hilary Fairclough RSHom, Clinical Director
The Maun Homeopathy Project
|The Travelling Homoeopaths Collective was established in the summer of 1990 to provide a charitable drop-in Homoeopathic Clinic at out door public events, music festivals and fairs. They treat thousands of people every year at many festivals including Glastonbury (where some 20 practitioners cover a period of 18 hours during the day), some of the other events they cover are:- Larmer Tree, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wychwood Music Festival and The Big Green Gathering. They have four clinics covering The North, West and South.
The Clinics offer treatment for acute conditions, such as hay fever, sun stroke, sunburn, digestive upsets, coughs, and colds, all common occurrences at such events. We also offer advice and support for people who have chronic or more long-term disorders and diseases as well as this we promote Homoeopathy.
The Collective is made up of Qualified, Registered and Insured Homoeopaths who work on a voluntary basis. All donations received go towards maintenance, travel expenses, and the further promotion of Homoeopathy.
