By sharing our ideas and diverse expertise we believe we can learn from each other to improve occupational therapy service user outcomes and experiences. By talking to each other, we find out who shares the same goals and can support each other and collaborate to achieve them far more easily when we work together.

- News about research funding you could be eligible for and events you may wish to attend
