Regional groups

Regional map

The CIPR is represented throughout the UK via our network of 14 regional and national groups.

Each group runs a programme of events, seminars and networking opportunities and acts as a source of information for what is happening in the profession and the Institute. CIPR members are automatically linked to their local group on joining and are actively encouraged to participate in their region's activities.

You are automatically a member of your regional group and placed on its mailing list. Please contact them directly if you wish to find out further information on their activities. The group to which a member belongs is based upon the current mailing address, if a different group would be preferred, please email
