RIBA is a charity and global professional body promoting architecture and providing a range of experiences across the regions for architects, students and those interested in the built environment.
Through our network of volunteer led groups, branches and chapters we seek to connect, inform and inspire our members and the wider communities in which they work and live.
We have a network of branches and special interest groups across England and Wales (run through the Royal Society of Architects in Wales, which remains part of RIBA) and several International chapters. You can find out more about this network and who to contact further down this page, under the relevant geographical region.
We also work with similar organisations across the world, including the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (affiliate organisation), the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (affiliate organisation) and the Architects’ Council of Europe.
Branches and chapters listed on this page are eligible to apply for financial support from the RIBA via the annual Local Initiative Fund (LIF) to fund activities that align with our 2034 Masterplan.
