We are seeking to appoint six lay Members to our Professional Committee.

Help publicise CNHC’s Accredited Register
We produce two leaflets – one aimed at complementary healthcare practitioners, encouraging them to “Stand Up for Standards” by registering with CNHC, and a public information leaflet aimed at people looking for a therapist, explaining how they can “Choose with Confidence” by searching our online Accredited Register.
If you are exhibiting or speaking at an event and would like to help spread the word about CNHC’s voluntary Accredited Register, or would like to display some public information leaflets in your practice’s reception area – you can order them us free of charge.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating the leaflet(s) you would like, the quantity required, the date you need them by and where to send them. Please allow at least four weeks for delivery as we mail out around once a month.
