What's New


Please be advised that the BPS e-Community section of the website will be retired by the end of June 2014.

The Society is doing all it can to deliver its strategic objective to ‘greater match the Society’s activities to the needs of its membership’. The Your BPS member engagement survey highlighted that the e-Community was not highly valued by members in comparison with the main website.

From June 2014, the Members’ Area of the website will become your access point for all online member services offered by BPS. Any information that you have shared previously through the e-Community will be stored securely offline as part of the Society’s archive and in keeping with our existing policies.


Do you want to help us modernize our website?
The Society is keen to engage a small group of members in developing future improvements to the website. If you would like to register your interest in participating in testing updates, please contact info@bps.ac.uk with the subject line ‘Volunteer for website testing’.
