    If you live, work or learn in England you are automatically a member of your CSP regional network

    Regional networks have an allocated budget, CSP staff support, website and Frontline coverage – plus a strong voice and influence at the CSP Annual Representative Conference. They are also a key channel for you to contribute your knowledge and expertise to national CSP policy, practice and other initiatives.

    They are led by members for members

    Regional networks are powerful

    They offer:

    • A gateway to network with other CSP members locally.
    • A network to support each other and address your local area’s unique needs.
    • Learning opportunities driven by what matters most to you.
    • A community that can help you to raise awareness of physiotherapy and influence healthcare locally.

    Country boards

    Made up of CSP members, the country boards lead and represent the profession in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

    They are supported by a team of CSP staff and together they promote excellence in practice and employment, and influence healthcare policy across their area. 

    Country boards provide a forum for the CSP membership to be represented and to discuss matters affecting the physiotherapy profession. They act as a conduit for information from grassroots membership to CSP Council and vice versa.

    Each country board hosts free events (in person and virtual) which all members are invited to attend. These events enable them to:

    • Engage with members across the country.
    • Support member learning and CPD.
    • Bring members together to network and build connections.
    • Showcase exemplar services and practice from across the nation.
    • Provide updates from the CSP and about the work of the board.

    Country boards engage with CSP members through various channels including their regular Frontline column, social media channels and by publishing news on their respective sections of the CSP website. 

    You can also receive email updates from your local country board and CSP team – to ensure that you’ve opted in to receive these emails see ‘How to get involved’.

    How to get involved:

    1. Check out the regional networks pages at the back of each issue of Frontline, for contact information for each regional network and country board.
