We welcome new members to the ACPPLD. In order to join you must already be a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

We have 2 joining methods, online or manual. The ACPPLD membership year runs from 1st April till 31st March. If you wish to join us mid-year, your membership will still end on 31st March but your payment will be calculated pro-rata if you join online. Please note - We do not currently have the facility to do this manually, so is for online renewals only.

Our primary communication method with members is via email, and the link to our quarterly newsletter is distributed this way too, so it is vital that you update your email address with us if you change it

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 ACPPLD member content on the website is immediate.  

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.

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.

Manual Joining method

It is possible to join ACPPLD manually by following the process below. This method can take a while for the membership secretary to complete, and your access to member content on the website may be delayed, so we recommend using the online joining method if at all possible.

  • Please download and print off the membership application form (link below)
  • Download and print a standing order form (link below)
  • Send both forms in the mail to Liz Whitaker, Membership Secretary (address is on the application form)
  • Please ensure you give us the same contact details as your CSP membership account. For example many people are registered with CSP under their maiden name but try to join ACPPLD using a married name. We are unable to activate your online access to ACPPLD site unless these details match
