Doors to our membership are now closed

We will be reopening our membership later in 2023, if you would like to be one of the first to hear when we do this please signup via the link below. 

Hey there! So glad you are here…


If you are running a VA business in the UK (or you have UK clients),

then our industry-leading growth membership is a MUST for you!


Being a part of our signature APVA membership allows our members to truly stand out from the crowd in our rapidly growing market PLUS it gives them the tools, support and resources to keep ahead of the curve.



Being an approved member you are showing your clients that you work with the utmost professionalism and have the necessary robust processes and systems in place to support them at the highest level.

Being an APVA member has been fundamental to my business growth.

After discovering the organisation after 6 months of going solo, my business grew from strength to strength and I wouldn’t be where I was today without the help from Charlotte and the APVA community. I’d recommend for anyone who is serious about their VA business to check out the community and see the potential for themselves – you won’t regret it!

I am often asked by new or aspiring VAs for my insight into how to get started and always suggest that, before they do anything else, to find APVA to connect with the amazing community. I was introduced to APVA very early on in my VA journey and it made a profound impact on my business and general mindset over-night. APVA is head and shoulders above the rest of the pack in leading the way on transforming the VA industry and raising both the profile of VAs but also the standard that clients should expect. As a member, I am privileged to have even more access to business coaching, master-class tutorials on anything from GDPR through to imposter syndrome, client matching opportunities and incredible discounts on services, plus I get to chat, collaborate, share success and ask for guidance/support with some of the most inspiring, collaborative, intelligent and professional business owners I have ever encountered - I display my APVA Founding Members badge with pride and honour.

What Our Members Are Saying…

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for all the help and support that you’ve shown me this year. It’s enabled me to confidently set up my business and I feel that I’ve been welcomed so warmly into your amazing community of online business owners. I really couldn’t have done it in the same way without you and your members and I really can’t imagine not having the APVA community behind me now.

You should be so proud of what you’re doing with APVA – it’s such a warm, collaborate, supportive and professional community and that feeling can only come from one place – the top.

‘Becoming an APVA member has completely changed my business for the better. The accreditation criteria pushed me to get certain parts of my business operations up to standard very quickly and the continued support and advice you get from the team is second to none. In the six months I’ve been a member I’ve gained three new clients thanks to the introductions made by team APVA and the business profile I have on the APVA website. I wholeheartedly recommend applying to be a member if you’re ready to take the next step forward with your VA business’

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to APVA. I had my first session today with the gorgeous new retainer client that you introduced me to. Also, thanks to you I managed to get on a fabulous presentation skills course which was totally amazing.

I’ve been a member of APVA since I started my VA journey. It is my go to community for help and support. The facebook group has a friendly and positive feel about it. I get a lot from the lives that Charlotte does on key subjects and how supportive she is. Would defo recommend to anyone thinking about becoming a VA and existing VA’s. Keep up the fab work team!

Michelle Freeman

I found APVA and I am so pleased I did. I am part of the member community and everyone is so supportive and helpful. I had a successful business before being a member but I didn’t want to stay where i was i wanted more and APVA has given me that. Thank you Charlotte

Charlotte Owen

Charlotte has created a fantastic place for high quality VA’s to hang out and be part of a bigger team. Her members group is by far the biggest asset to her business, along with the other amazing value she gives, such as webinars, accreditation, and coaching.

I wouldn’t be where I am now without APVA, and highly recommend anyone wanting to be part of a high level team, gets involved now.

You want support and nurture? You’ve got it and a whole host more.

Sarah Small


Charlotte is a fantastic Business Coach and a driving force behind elevating standards in the Virtual Assistant industry. I’m thrilled to have become a fully accredited member of APVA and can’t thank her enough for her continued, invaluable support in helping me to build my virtual businesses. Charlotte’s APVA members’ group is fantastic community of inspirational Virtual Assistants, each with different backgrounds, skill-sets and personalities – it’s a great pool of knowledge and collaboration and life just wouldn’t be the same without it!

Suzanne Ekpenyong

Bilingual Solutions & YES Virtual Assistance

While I love being a VA, one of the down sides is the solitary nature of the role, being part of APVA enables you to link up with like-minded professional VAs who are proud of what we do.

I am enjoying being part of both the Members Club and the Hub, picking up hints and tips and interacting with everyone. Both Charlotte and Amanda are hugely supportive and I am very much looking forward to being part of the journey for APVA.

I have already recommended colleagues to the Hub and when Virtual Angels are in need of support, we won’t have to look very far to find great associates!

Nicola Slade

Virtual Angels

Although I’ve previously declined to join any other VA organisations, when I heard that Amanda Slack and Charlotte Wibberley were setting up APVA, I decided that I wanted to be a part of it from the outset. The key thing for me is the excellent online peer support – the job can be quite solitary, working in a remote office and sometimes not seeing anyone for several days. Sometimes I also need guidance and advice from other VAs, both new and old, as to how to go about solving a particular issue, whether it’s technical or resource-related. Hopefully I’m able to help others myself too. It’s just great feeling part of a community that’s focused on quality and support. When I’m looking for new top class Associate VAs to join my team, APVA will be the first place I’ll search! I highly recommend APVA
