A SUPPORTIVE NETWORK
A career that’s well-connected
We support occupational therapists throughout their careers, offering our network of more than 33,500 members national, local and specialised guidance.
HOW WE CAN HELP
We’ll support your journey every step of the way
Although much of what you do will be carried out on a one-to-one basis, a lot of occupational therapy work is collaborative. Specialists often work together to support colleagues and share knowledge more broadly. And if you choose to work independently for your own practice, you won’t be alone. At RCOT, we have resources and services that are designed to support all of our members wherever they work, as well as to enhance and promote our profession.
That includes things like e-learning resources and events, professional advice, journals and other publications through our dedicated library service. We also have a number of networks that are relevant to the stage of your career, where you live and work, or your specialism. Put simply, we’ll help you to get the most out of your career.

Every single day is different, with new challenges – I can't imagine doing anything else.
Being an occupational therapist allows me to facilitate independence and improve individuals’ quality of life and self-worth.
I enjoy the diversity of the job and the challenge of rebuilding people's lives after trauma.
