Welcome to the North West of England Branch.
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.
The North West Branch covers the following postcodes:
Manchester (M), Liverpool (L), Chester (CH), Crewe (CW), Stockport (SK), Warrington (WA), Wigan (WN), Bolton (BL), Blackburn (BB), Oldham (OL), Preston (PR), Blackpool (FY), Isle of Man (IM), Lancaster (LA), and Carlisle (CA)
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 (see Home). The aim 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:
Communication is high on the agenda. You can contact us directly through here. 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! One of the best ways to hear about our events now is through facebook, if you are a member, by ‘liking’ our pages: (Branch activities for psychologists) and (‘Psychology in the Pub’ events for the public), and through Twitter.
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. Please email us in the first instance.
We hope to see you at one of our events.
