The Tait Vision Fund is a registered charity dedicated to supporting, promoting and encouraging the treatment of individuals using Nature Cure methods. Grants are made for training, setting up practices and most importantly, to enable those in ill health and in financial hardship to access Nature Cure treatment.
The charity was set up in 1948 to carry forward the vision of Adam Tait – a grateful patient of the Kingston Clinic in Edinburgh – to establish another health home in Scotland where the good work could be continued and extended, Sadly due to a legal technicality his bequest could not be implemented. This was a spur to James Thomson and family to create a charity in his name. Other patients who had benefitted from Nature Cure treatment at the Kingston Clinic rallied round and donations started to roll in.
The Fund is still active today – seven decades later – and it continues to foster the training of new practitioners and disseminate information about Nature Cure more widely. Initially focused on Scotland, latterly the Fund has spread its net wider to include all Nature Cure practitioners registered with the Incorporated Society of Registered Naturopaths in the U.K.
