In our busy lives, we don’t often stop and appreciate the work we do and recognise the difference it brings to people’s lives every day.
This is what AHPs Day is all about, and we invite you to celebrate the work that AHPs do on Monday 14 October and share that celebration on Twitter to join in the worldwide #AHPsDay movement.
Gather your peers and get involved – together let’s celebrate, appreciate and inspire
Here are a few celebratory ideas for you to think about, but feel free to let your imagination run wild and organise something that is meaningful to you.
- Host a morning or afternoon tea
- Create your own appreciation and gratitude awards with the resource pack template
- Invite non-AHP and Executive staff to “shadow an AHP for an hour”
- Run a quiz
The Office of the Chief Allied Health Officer (OCAHO) can help you with ideas and are sharing great resources including a resource pack and poster to help plan your celebration.
You can even ‘pin’ your celebrations on Zeemaps as great way to see and show how far across the globe people are getting involved.
Posting your celebration on Twitter
This movement really comes alive on Twitter, both leading up to, and on AHPs Day itself. We encourage you to use your social media accounts to post and share information on what you have planned and then on the day with some fun photos of your activity. Please use the following hashtags:

What is AHPs Day?
#AHPs Day is an initiative started in the UK by two clinicians to celebrate what we do and why it is valuable. The inaugural event generated huge excitement and traction with over 36 million twitter impressions and close to 18,000 individual tweets.
