The Mary Seacole Trust originated as the Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal, established in 2004. The charity was set up to educate the public on the life, work and achievements of Crimean War nurse Mary Seacole, including erecting a statue capturing her spirit, whilst also emphasising the importance of the nursing profession.

The Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal formally changed its name to the Mary Seacole Trust on 1 November 2016. The transition was publicised by a launch event at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton in June this year.
