North Thames

The North Thames FPOP group comprises of a growing, dedicated membership who welcome new members and visitors interested in working psychologically with older people. 

The North Thames group is co-ordinated by a committee, which includes members from most of the Trusts in the region. Please make contact with your local committee member to find out more about the local group and upcoming events. In January 2010 it was decided to further develop North Thames FPOP group and a committee was formed with its inaugural meeting in March 2010 .

The committee has been established to lead the activities of the local group and has various functions such as organising CPD events, informing local members about relevant events or policies or initiatives, linking with training courses and with national FPOP. We meet regularly at the BPS offices. The minutes of each meeting are available on request from the committee.
