We see you, we thank you, we celebrate you

The 2021 FHT Excellence Awards finalists have been chosen!

The FHT Excellence Awards showcase how you, our members, are making a difference to people living in your local community – from helping clients to improve their health and wellbeing, to providing tailored learning and support to students and qualified therapists. After the unprecedented year we have all experienced, and the ongoing pandemic, it has never been more important to recognise the many ways professional therapists can make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of others.

Last year we introduced the category, FHT Green Therapy Business of the Year, and we are excited to continue that award for the second year running. We are also delighted to announce a brand new category for 2021, FHT Inclusive Therapy Business of the Year, for therapy businesses embracing diversity and inclusion, as part of our ongoing commitment to support inclusivity within the industry.
