We’ve been shortlisted for three membership excellence awards, including one for our work to support members throughout the pandemic.

We’re nominated in the Best Member Support During COVID-19 – Small Organisation category at the Memcom Excellence Awards 2021 for our Member and Public Covid-19 Response (MaPCoR) campaign.

Therapy Today is shortlisted for the Best Magazine with a circulation of more than 20,000, while the BACP Workplace journal is up for Best Magazine with a circulation of less than 20,000.

The MaPCoR campaign aimed to anticipate, identify and fulfil the changing needs of our members and their clients to create the best possible experience during the pandemic.

Member resources

Our team delivered a comprehensive set of resources for members, including a dedicated COVID-19 microsite.

This suite of resources was the central point for our member and public COVID-19 engagement and included key communications, resources, events and guidance. We also produced a range of FAQs and guidance, regular temperature-check surveys, webinars, news and training.”

Hadyn Williams, our Chief Executive, said: “It’s been an incredibly challenging 15 months for our members as they’ve had to adapt to the lockdowns, changing restrictions, and new ways of working, and we’ve been there to support them every step of the way.

“We rose to the challenge of successfully moving our workforce to a virtual working environment while continuing to serve and support our members and exceed their expectations.

“We’re extremely proud of the hard work, dedication and skill that has gone into and continues to go into supporting our members through this pandemic, so for our work to be recognised by being shortlisted for an award by an external organisation is really pleasing.”

Passionate and generous

Sally Brown, Editor of Therapy Today, said: “I’m delighted Therapy Today has been shortlisted as to me, it’s a reflection of the high standard of submissions we get from members, who are passionate about their work and generous sharing the benefit of their knowledge and experience with fellow practitioners.

“Therapy Today strives to be an accessible and responsive member communication platform, a place for members to get their voice heard and share their experiences and views, whether that’s through the letters page, a profile slot or a longer article.

“Creating a publication which meets the needs of a diverse range of more than 55,000 members will always be a challenge, but it’s the feedback and involvement of BACP’s members that makes it possible, and also makes the role of Editor so rewarding.”

Jacqui Gray, our Managing Editor, said she was delighted BACP Workplace had been shortlisted.

“The journal is a finger-on-the-pulse read for therapists in workplace settings, as well as for related professionals,” she said.

“Always lively and topical, the content brings together the issues that matter to our members. BACP Workplace’s editor is passionate about workplace counselling, and that really shows in the content and the finished product.”

The award winners will be announced on Thursday 30 September.
