Elizabeth Casson Trust
Did you know?
Dr Elizabeth Casson was a tour de force. Like many, she had hit a few road bumps along the way that she had to overcome. However her achievements are plain to see:
- Did you know she started the profession of occupational therapy in England, even though she was a psychiatrist?
- Did you know she founded and funded the Elizabeth Casson Trust which invests over £350,000 back into the profession through grants and awards each year?
How much do you know about Elizabeth? Why is she important?
How much do you know about the Trust? How can it help you?
Why not visit the links to learn more (you won’t be disappointed!) and then enter our competition?
We are inviting OTs, assistants, technicians, and students to make a short video* telling us what inspires you about Elizabeth or about her legacy of the Trust. Films can be created by individuals or teams.
The competition will be judged by you, so come by our stand F50 to vote for your favourite.
The winning video will be hosted on our website, and a prize of £500 will be given for the winner(s) to invest in well-being activities.
Read more here on how to submit entry.
We look forward to seeing your videos and hearing your thoughts.
This competition was inspired by a group of Glasgow Caledonian 1st year OT students (Emma Idowu, Amy Wallen, Chibuikem Nwannah, Joy Akpanumoh, Julie-Anne Shearer, Blessing Christian) who made a video and shared it with us on the Trust’s ‘birthday’, 30 June. You can view the video here.
