South West of England Branch

Welcome to the South West of England Branch of the British Psychological Society (inclusive of the Channel Islands).

Our aim is to create a lively, informative and supportive network of Psychologists to bring Psychology to all our members (students, academics, practitioners) and the wider public.

How the South West Branch operates

The Branch covers a large area from Bristol in the north, Cornwall and the islands of Jersey and Guernsey in the south; and to the east we border on the Wessex Branch in Dorset.

Coordinating activities over such an area requires a structure that guides the strategy of what we do (by the co-ordinating working groups) and local activities (by the Hubs).

Mindful of wishing to support members during every stage of their journey in the study and application of psychology we have four co-ordinating working groups.

How can I contribute to the SW Branch?

We are keen to establish other local groups (Hubs) and maybe you would like to help us do this?

Or perhaps you would like to join a co-ordinating working group and contribute to Branch activities?

No matter what, we would encourage you all to get as actively involved as you can.

In particular, we are looking for:

  • Contributions for our newsletter - articles, photographs, or events, etc

  • Event updates - what’s going on in your local area? Do you have any suggestions?

  • Website updates - let us know if you would like to share information with others 

If you have any comments, queries, or would like to help us out please email us
