Welcome to the OT Frontiers website!  


OT Frontiers is a network of occupational therapists based in the UK who support the development of occupational therapy in low- and middle-income countries.  We collaborate with our overseas colleagues in projects they undertake.  We strive to understand how as UK occupational therapists we can most appropriately apply our practice in the context of these countries.
