What are we all about?

About us

Aspiring Allies is an awareness and engagement initiative built around raising the profile of Allied Health Professional careers.

Roles in healthcare are often perceived as being limited to medicine or nursing

From an early age, children play Doctors and Nurses rather than Occupational Therapists and Dietitians. We want to showcase the wide range of alternative roles within healthcare that are equally as valid and just as rewarding.

Aspiring Allies has been developed by a group of Allied Health Professionals who are passionate about promoting the value of their roles across a diverse audience.

The initiative and its engagement platforms are currently managed by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate AHP Faculty, a collective of healthcare and education institutions.
