ABLEOTUK is a UK Occupational Therapy Network/Advocacy Group for Practitioners, Students, Researchers, Educators and People with Disabilities/Long Term Health Conditions.
AbleOTUK was officially launched onTuesday 27th July 2021 as a support and advocacy network.
We will host monthly Zoom/Teams get togethers as a closed safe space for members to share and gain peer support to process experiences and challenges. There will also be time and space for non-disabled allies to learn and connect.
We plan to develop resources on a range of topics such as disclosure, supporting OT colleagues with a disability/health condition etc.
We are in discussions with RCOT re collaborations with them about activities which have mutual benefit and aim to progress an antidiscriminatory culture within occupational therapy in the UK .
We do all of this recognising intersectionality, and that we are STRONGER TOGETHER when working toward a common aim.
