The North East of England Branch are dedicated to making psychology available to all by growing public understanding of psychology.

We are committed to supporting local psychologists as they endeavour to communicate their research and practice with a broader audience at a regional, national and international level. 

This event aims to celebrate the achievements of local psychologists who have succeeded in engaging the public in psychology by sharing best practice and reflecting on lessons learned. It hopes to inspire other psychologists to pursue public engagement in their research and practice. 

Please see the programme tab for further information.

The event will start at 7.30pm
