Welcome to the CIPFA South East region

UK map

CIPFA South East is the largest of the CIPFA regions, with nearly 5,500 members and students. We have an active regional council, local hub groups and a student network that deliver a broad programme of regular events for our members and students.

We run free and low-cost events for members and students who live or work in the Southeast. Events are held across the region, both in central London and in local hubs including Essex, Cambridgeshire, Kent, Thames Valley and Wessex.

For anyone who may need support: CIPFA's Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub is available to you and anyone in your personal or workplace networks. The hub brings together information and support on a wide range of topics. Access is free of charge, anonymous and there's no need to register.

Regional forum

A forum for CIPFA members and students in the regions to share ideas, documentation and discuss future plans.

The forum is restricted to CIPFA region members and uses the same login details as the CIPFA website. You will be asked to login if you are not already logged in to the website.

We have produced a guideline document on how to use the forum and some best practice hints and tips to help you get started.
