Regional & Local Groups

Your local and regional BAOT professional network is pivotal to your continuing professional development

Participate in the professional life of the organisation to ensure that you get the most out of your membership.


When you join BAOT you are instantly a member of your BAOT region based on your home address. Each region is supported by a committee of volunteer members who are nominated annually to support local and regional events, networking groups and activities, sharing of best practice and information to and from the College of Occupational Therapists.


Being a member of your region enables you to take advantage of opportunities to build strong networks to further your own professional development and the growth of the profession as a whole.
