Allied Health Professions Australia is a collegiate body of allied health peak associations that work together to collectively represent and advocate for the role of allied health professionals across health and related sectors such as aged care, disability, and mental health.
We believe that by working together, we can more effectively increase awareness of the important contribution of the allied health workforce and address some of the issues affecting the sector. We know that governments and other stakeholders seek a united voice. We encourage applications from allied health organisations that meet the eligibility criteria who are seeking to add their voice to our work.
Benefits of membership
AHPA member organisations receive tangible benefits through their membership. AHPA works on behalf of its members by engaging directly with government and non-government stakeholders to advocate around shared issues. AHPA regularly develops submissions and participates in consultations on behalf of the sector, informed by our members. AHPA also acts as an information sharing house, providing a central access point for information of relevance to our members.
Membership provides formal and informal opportunities for networking and collegial support for CEOs and policy staff. In addition, the roll-out of organisational benefits is underway leveraging off AHPA’s collective buying power and increasing profile.
There are two categories of membership; Ordinary Membership and Affiliate Membership.
