Influencing Decision Makers  

BACP's Policy and Public Affairs Team works to influence key decision makers at every stage of policy making. From MPs in the House of Commons, to Government Ministers, civil servants and across the devolved institutions, our team ensures our members' views are heard.   

Raising Awareness 

Raising the profile of counselling and psychotherapy and mental health in general is a key function of the department. We are constantly looking for opportunities to increase policymakers' understanding of the benefits of psychological therapies.

To do this we submit evidence to government bodies and non-governmental organisations through submitting consultation responses. 

Parliamentary Work

We continually monitor the political news cycle, including key debates, questions, statements and proposed new legislation across Westminster, the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly and the Northern Ireland Assembly. This allows us to react and have input into changes which may impact on our members and the profession. 

You can keep up to date with BACP's policy and public affairs work here, through Therapy Today and Twitter @BACP .
