Assistants name change

The CSP has responded to the views of support worker members by changing the name of its assistant member category.

Some members felt that ‘assistants’ did not reflect the hard work that they had put in to developing their careers, while others felt the title wrongly implied that the membership category was for assistants only, not other support workers.

The category has therefore been changed to associate member, which means the Physiotherapy Assistants Board is now the Physiotherapy Associates Board and the former assistants officer, Catherine Smith, is now the associate member officer.

The badge is to be redesigned.


See the associates network on interactiveCSP, the Society’s member networking website, or contact Catherine Smith, associate member officer, tel 020 7314 7843 or email

A position paper The Impact of Regulation on Support Workers is available on the CSP website
