How to join Online

This is the easiest and quickest way to join, using our secure online process.  It typically takes 3-5 minutes (if you already have a CSP website account) and access to BACPAR member content on the website is immediate.  

BACPAR requires additional information

We just need a little more information from you, as well as joining online, in order to keep our BACPAR membership database up to date. It is very important that you tell us this information whenever you join or renew your membership.

We hope that you enjoy your membership.

If you do not have a CSP website account you will need to create one first, to do so click on 'Register' and again follow the instructions.  If you have an account but have forgotten your login details, click on 'login' and then click on 'reset your password'. You will get an email to enable you to reset your password.

Department membership and applicants holding a non UK bank account can only be made using the paper membership application form and process.

Overseas members please note: - Payments can be made from any Single Europe Payments Area country. You will need to have a Euro account open in a Eurozone country, if your country is not included then please join offline/paper application.


Membership categories

The membership categories are:

1.       Full Membership is open to any current member of the CSP whether they are a qualified physiotherapist or a CSP associate member. This enables the holder to vote at the BACPAR AGM and hold a seat on the executive committee. (Some executive positions are only open to Physiotherapists in this category- see the BACPAR constitution). Physiotherapists working within the UK must also be members of the HCPC. CSP members working outside of the UK must be registered with the appropriate governing body of the country in which they are working (should one be in place).                                                                                                 

         Full Membership Fee = £35.00 

         Reduced fee for CSP associate members = £15.00

2.      Departmental Membership is available to any physiotherapy department and may have full BACPAR membership status. This allows 2 delegates who are CSP members to attend study days at the membership rates, but it allows only 1 vote at the BACPAR AGM.

        Departmental Membership Fee = £55.00

3.      Allied Associate Membership is available (at the discretion of the National Executive Committee) to;

a) those from professions who are not eligible to join the CSP. All such members will have membership of a health or professional body or association as appropriate to their role.

b) any physiotherapist, working outside of the UK, who is not a member of the CSP providing they are a member of the governing body of the country in which they are working (should one be in place).

c) any student of physiotherapy.

Allied Associate Members are not entitled to vote at the BACPAR AGM but can hold certain seats on the executive committee at the discretion of the Executive (see the BACPAR constitution).
