About Us

The National Health Service was founded in 1946 to be free at the point of use, funded by central taxation and available for everyone. However, Christian Scientists had to pay for their Christian Science nursing care. Several charities were set up to support the Christian Science nursing facilities and Christian Science nurses, though few helped those individuals who needed or wanted to be nursed at home.

In 1979 The Aid Fund emerged from the consolidation of several of these Christian Science charities. A number of Christian Scientists, primarily members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, London, realized that there was a need for a fund to support patients who needed Christian Science nursing care who would otherwise not be able to afford it - hence the title: “The Aid Fund for Christian Scientists in Need of Nursing Care”.
