The Charity Commission, the official regulator of charities in England and Wales, has accepted the International Self-Care Foundation as a charity and entered us onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1158114. Having charity status requires that ISF operates to a strict set of rules designed for the public benefit, providing reassurance for all our partners and supporters and other organisations in health.
To see ISF’s charitable ‘objects’ (our purpose), core strategy, Vision and Mission please see the ISF website section ‘About ISF’.
ISF’s focus is global. Our independent sister organisation ISF China, which focuses on China, is also registered as a charity, in Hong Kong. ISF China has been very successful in working with other stakeholders in health, and in gaining celebrity and philanthropic support, for public-benefit self-care programmes throughout China.
