Volunteering and Work Opportunities


We are not a sending agency, but we are passionate about equipping and collaborating with OTs working in less resourced settings, so we do come across opportunities in other countries. Find more information here

Distance Partnerships


Similar to mentoring, but with a strong emphasis on the equality of the relationship, our distance partnerships allow OTs from different countries to share knowledge and skills. Find more information here
