The Association of Foot & Ankle Physiotherapists & AHPs (AFAP) is an educational charity providing educational opportunities for Physiotherapists & other Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) with a special interest in Foot & Ankle musculoskeletal problems to learn, connect & share information, thereby improving patient care.
Our Charitable Aims
To increase learning, research and skill sharing opportunities within the field of foot & ankle musculoskeletal problems for Physiotherapists & AHPs, thereby leading to an improvement in patient care & outcomes.
This will be achieved by:
The Association of Foot & Ankle Physiotherapists (AFAP) was launched in October 2012 by four like minded Physiotherapists who had the good fortune to meet at a Foot & Ankle conference earlier that year.
AFAP gained official achieved charitable status in February 2014 - Registered Charity Number 1155774. We are self funded through educational courses & events and donations.
The AFAP charity aims to help support and bring together Physios & AHPs who have a special interest or expertise within the Foot & Ankle in order to improve the quality of care, and is therefore being run for the benefit of the public.
