RIBA is a charity and global professional body promoting architecture and providing support, events, and activities for architects, students and those interested in the built environment, both online and in the places local to you.
We have a network of Branches 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 Institute of Architects in Scotland (affiliate organisation), the Royal Society of Architects in Ulster (affiliate organisation) and the Architects’ Council of Europe.
Our worldwide volunteer-led groups bring people together through their shared interests in architecture and the built environment.
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.
