Could you help shape the future counselling and psychotherapy landscape?
Our four committees are responsible for supporting the development and ongoing delivery of our strategy, providing the oversight that ensures our policies and processes are being applied consistently and effectively.
By joining one of our committees, you'll have the opportunity to contribute directly to the way BACP operates and oversee the various workstreams held by each committee.
We're looking for individuals with a wide range of experience to join three of our committees:
Finance, Risk, Audit, Policy and Performance (FRAPP), which holds responsibility for developing our financial strategy.
Public Protection Committee (PPC), which holds responsibility for developing our public protection strategy, including the development of our Register.
Governance, Remuneration and Nomination Committee (GRaN), which holds responsibility for ensuring effective governance across the organisation and for considering and determining the framework for remuneration, benefits and incentives.
Our committees perform an integral function and comprise of BACP members and non-members. It would be desirable, but not essential, if you've supported or worked within the charity sector. There's no expectation that appointed members of a committee will have any direct knowledge or experience of counselling and psychotherapy.
Is joining a committee for you?
Becoming a member of a committee is extremely beneficial, giving you the opportunity to use your skills to directly impact on the running of an organisation. For those interested in becoming a Trustee or sitting on a Board of Governors, joining a committee gives invaluable transferable experience which is highly regarded by recruiters.

These are volunteer roles and are not remunerated, though all reasonable expenses incurred will be reimbursed by BACP.
