RCOT SS - Work

Supporting people to remain in, return to, or obtain work is a key function of occupational therapy.

We passionately believe that occupational therapists have a major role to play in this exciting and multi-faceted enterprise. We work with other organisations in order to foster good relationships and champion our unique contribution as occupational therapists.

Our Specialist Section includes members from both private and statutory sectors and encompasses practitioners from mental health, learning disability and physical settings.
