@otindependence

Stuart Barrow is an occupational therapist, expert consultant to key service providers within the industry and the managing director of Promoting Independence Limited.

Having worked in the occupational therapy sector for nearly 20 years, initially as an occupational therapist, and latterly as an events coordinator and consultant, Stuart has a unique insight into the skills and equipment occupational therapists need to excel.

Stuart runs the Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conference, which is the only free adaptations and equipment-based conference for occupational therapists in the UK.

The conference focuses on bringing suppliers and OTs together in one place – in different venues across the UK – with one aim: to improve the industry as a whole and provide better value to the end user.

Stuart cares passionately about caring for others, and his MA in Healthcare Law and Ethics, his support of the Children’s Hospital of Wales and his membership of the Royal College of Occupational Therapist panel allow him to put that passion into practice.

Outside of his vocation, Stuart enjoys walking, cycling and running, spending time with his wife Emma and his two children.
