The Margaret Pyke Trust is the registered charity which founded the original Margaret Pyke Centre in 1969. Today the Margaret Pyke Centre, operated by the NHS, is one of the busiest contraceptive centres in the world. The Centre serves between 600 and 900 patients per week. It is the hub of a network of clinics across Brent, Camden and Islington in Central London. Over a 12 month period, the whole service carries out approximately 75,000 consultations.

Since 1974, when the NHS took over provision of contraceptive services, the Trust has focused on medical education training courses for professionals and, alongside University College London, supports research in the field of contraception and sexual & reproductive health. In 2003 the Trust launched its international programme, the Population and Sustainability Network (PSN). PSN works to promote its vision of a world where everyone can decide freely whether, when, and how many children they want, for the benefit of all people and the planet. PSN is currently directly involved with family planning projects in both Uganda and South Africa.
