Join a Special Interest Group and be a part of changing the AT landscape in the UK

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are an exciting part of BATA membership

Sign up today, meet new colleagues from around the UK and find out what others in your field are talking about.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are focused on specialist topic areas and designed for discussing news, ideas and projects. They enable members to converse on the subjects that are important to them.

SIGs facilitate collaboration with nationwide colleagues to advance change in UK AT where it is needed and take their united voice to those who can affect policy.
