Please note that when you apply for membership - payment will be taken up front. 

Our team will need to validate your application so there will not be immediate access to MACP member benefits. Once your application is approved you will then receive the email from MACP Evolve, the FourteenFish CPD portal. Please do not set up a FourteenFish account before you are approved as it will not be the correct portfolio.

This process will take a maximum of 3 weeks. If it is evident that you are not eligible for membership we reserve the right to apply an administration fee to your application refund. Affiliate membership does not entitle you to use MACP or MMACP after your name.

Your membership cannot be accepted unless you upload proof of CSP or HCPC membership with your application. There is a button on the Join form to upload your proof of CSP or HCPC Membership.
