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 also requires additional information if you want the full benefits of membership

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 and so that we can contact you by email or send you a journal if you request a printed version. It is very important that you tell us this information you join and if any of your details have changed.

As well as clicking on the green box below to join online please can you also complete our professional profile form and membership information and return to

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 Physiotherapist. Physiotherapists in the UK must also be members of CSP in order for us to maintain our Chartered title, and of the HCPC. Therapists working outside 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 is also open to individuals in Therapy Support Roles who have a significant part of their workload associated with amputees.  Therapy Support workers do not need to be members of the CSP although this is encouraged. They will receive full membership at a reduced rate. 

Full Membership Fee = £35.00 

Reduced fee for individuals in Therapy Support Roles = £15.00

2.      Departmental Membership is available to any physiotherapy department and may have full BACPAR membership status. This allows 2 relevant team members to attend as delegates (this can include other members of the MDT, but ideally at least one delegate should be a physiotherapist) at membership rates but allows only one vote at the AGM.

Departmental Membership Fee = £55.00
