The world's only Royal Chartered body for PR pros

Founded in 1948, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is the professional body for public relations practitioners in the UK. With over 10,000 members involved in all aspects of public relations, it is the largest body of its type in Europe

Advancing the UK public relations Industry

Our vision is the establishment of a chartered public relations profession serving clients and society with creative, technically expert and ethical practice.

Our members are recognised PR professionals. We work with and for them to set, maintain and advance standards. We do this through our industry respected qualifications; our Continuing Professional Development scheme, Accreditation and Chartership programmes; our open, in-house and bespoke training; our industry awards and conferences; and the production of research, best practice and skills guidance.

Moreover, through our ethical Code of Conduct and searchable PR registers, we make our members accountable to their employers, clients and the wider public.


As part of our partnership with TAF, together we have launched a Public Affairs & Communications Best Practice Forum (PUBCOM) for staff in trade associations who are responsible for member engagement, PR and public affairs activity. Find out more and join the group below:
