About The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is the professional, educational and trade union body for the UK's 58000 chartered physiotherapists, physiotherapy students and support workers.

The organisation was founded by four nurses nearly 125 years ago and was awarded a Royal Charter in 1920. Since that time CSP are proud to have become the profession's leading membership organisation in the UK.

The CSP aims to lead, promote and represent the profession by driving excellence in physiotherapy practice and employment and in influencing healthcare policy across the UK.

As an employer they realise that when employees feel connected to their vision, they thrive as a business. Therefore they endeavour to ensure that all of employees are well informed, as well as having a voice in which to let them know how they are doing.

The CSP hold events in order to update, engage and bring all employees together twice a year. As well as reflecting on the work they have achieved, they use the opportunity to remind all CSP staff why they do what they do. This will be with the backdrop of the CSP's vision for physiotherapy, which is to transform lives, maximise independence and empower populations.
