Support & Development

In line with our strategic intentions, The Elizabeth Casson Trust offers funding for support and development opportunities to registered occupation therapists to further the profession of occupational therapy. Opportunities are open primarily to occupational therapists in the United Kingdom but we also accept international requests for some awards (see each award page for further information).

Applications for courses and designing your own CPD learning events are received year round; others such as applications for conferences, postgraduate studies and international scholarships awards have specific windows for applying so please plan your development activities in plenty of time.

If you have any questions not answered in our FAQs, please contact Pamela Anderson at [email protected].

Therese discusses how person-centred goal setting was implemented on the stroke rehabilitation unit where she works and addresses the areas where leadership behaviours were required to implement the project. Therese reports on the successes that were achieved – a 15% reduction in the median length of stay on the unit. Read Therese’s report here
