North West of England

The North West is an exciting part of the UK, with lots going on and lots to offer psychologists living and working within the region. If you are a member of the BPS and are based within the north west region, you are automatically a member of our Branch.

We are a long-established Branch, involving a committee - elected yearly - and its membership, which consists of all BPS members in the north west of England.

The purpose of the Branch is to bring together psychologists and students of different fields from around this geographical region.

To fulfil our mission, our activities include:

  • Discussing and contributing to BPS matters and other psychology-relevant topics 
  • Organising and running events of broad interest in our membership, including conferences and workshops 
  • Organising careers events for students and other outreach activities 
  • Organising informal events that provide social networking opportunities cutting across the fields of psychology 
  • Organising public engagement events 
  • Supporting other events relevant to our membership that are held in our region 

If you are a BPS Branch member with ideas of what kind of events you would like, or if you are a related interest group in the region who’d like to make links with us, then we would very much like to hear from you!

You can contact us directly at [email protected] and keep up to date with ongoing developments and upcoming events using our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Not only does the Branch exist for you, but it is also effectively run by you. That is, events only happen because there are good people putting themselves forward, along with their effort and expertise, to organise relevant events, run them, and/or speak at them.

If you have any ideas for events and other activities, or you would be open to be invited as a guest speaker or otherwise contribute your expertise, then we would love to hear from you.
