COT London Region includes both the London Regional Committee of the College of Occupational Therapists and the London Region COT/Unison Shop Stewards’ Forum.
The London Regional Committee is staffed by elected volunteers and promotes occupational therapy in London by supporting local groups, attending careers promotion events, organising lifelong learning events and promoting networking events.
The London Region COT Shop Stewards’ Forum brings together COT shop stewards from across the region to discuss the issues arising in the workplaces and to arrange training for occupational therapy shop stewards as well as sending regional representatives to the National COT/Unison Panel to feedback local issues to national officers of COT and Unison.
Also active in London are the College of Occupational Therapists Specialist Sections, organising training and networking in a wide range of specialist areas.
We hope this blog will keep you informed of all the aspects of COT’s work in the London Region. You will also find us on Twitter as @LondonCOT (https://twitter.com/LondonCOT) and on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/BAOTLondon/). There are lots of ways to volunteer in all three areas of our work in London. Our email address is COT.London@cot.co.uk – Please contact us for details!
