The Core Issues Trust is a British Christian organisation, which focuses on issues of homosexuality, both Christian and non-Christian.

Core Issues Trust offers support to those seeking to change homosexual behaviour and feelings.[1] The Trust considers human sexuality in both men and women to be fluid; the brain malleable; and that sexual identity, feelings and patterning may change.

In April, 2012, the group received disparaging media coverage following a public campaign, which included advertisements on London buses claiming that therapy could change sexual orientation. Although the campaign was passed by the Committee of Advertising Practice, it was subsequently banned by London Mayor Boris Johnson.[2][3]

The group's leader, Dr. Mike Davidson (who received his doctorate in education rather than medicine),[4] defines himself as ex-gay,[5]
