Widening Participation


This position statement sets out the approach that the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) takes to supporting the delivery of a more diverse physiotherapy workforce that reflects the population it serves. As the UK’s professional, educational and trade union body for physiotherapy, the CSP seeks to shape, support and drive initiatives aimed at increasing the diversity of the physiotherapy workforce as described in this document.

The position statement may be used with higher education institutions (HEIs) to promote increasing diversity in the physiotherapy student population; with managers to encourage equal access to CPD opportunities and career pathways for physiotherapy support workers; with members of the public to stimulate interest in choosing physiotherapy as a profession; and with commissioners to ensure that they recognise the value of supporting flexible routes to qualification as a means to diversifying the workforce.

The position statement will be kept under review to ensure its currency and updated as necessary.
