Accredited Member Badge
We place our ‘Accredited Member’ badge on Wellbeing Umbrella stores who have provided proof of registration with a professional body/association.
To gain our ‘Accredited Member’ badge, Sellers must provide us with proof of the following:
- Professional body/association membership details
Being part of a Professional body/association demonstrates an individual is practicing a profession or occupation in which the professional body/association organisation maintains and oversees the knowledge, skills, conduct and practice of a particular profession or occupation. E.g. a practicing Counsellor maybe a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Please note: The Professional body/association(s) shown by individual Store Sellers only covers that particular professional element and may not include other elements within the Seller’s store or listings. E.g. British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), does not cover the professional elements of massage, even though a Store Seller may offer this too. It is your responsibility to check with individual Store Sellers their professional credentials before relying or agreeing to purchase from them.
Approved Stores & Personal Responsibility
For any wellbeing business to be a Store Seller on our Marketplace, they must provide us with proof of the following:
- Business Insurance cover
Store Sellers are responsible for keeping their insurance and if applicable professional body cover up to date. It is also their responsibility to notifying Us of any changes to their insurance or professional body/association membership cover status, including qualification.
As a User of this Site you are responsible for checking with individual Store Sellers their credentials before relying or agreeing to purchase from them. Please note, insurance cover and professional body/association membership generally expires on annual basis, so it is crucial that all individual Store Seller’s details are checked to ensure they are up to date by you the User.
Before purchasing, ask for evidence of:
- Valid business insurance cover
- Qualification(s) relevant to the service/product
- Professional body/association membership details relevant to the service/product
