LUPIN is open to all, whether you have used a clinical psychology service yourself, or know someone who has, or if you just have an interest in increasing public involvement within clinical psychology training.
We welcome all people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or ability. We actively promote diversity within LUPIN and aim to encourage trainees to think about diversity issues. Please see our diversity statement.
We also welcome representatives from other user involvement groups. We are always looking for new members, and guarantee a friendly welcome to new people at our meetings.
Please see and hear the stories of some of our members on the LUPIN members' stories page.
Our meetings usually last 2-3 hours, and take place around 4 times a year. Meetings usually take place either at Lancaster University or at a community venue in Preston.
People can be as involved as much as they want, attending meetings, being involved in interviews and teaching, or just remaining on our distribution list (email or postal) to receive information and updates on LUPIN. You can opt into events as and when you want.
Please contact Jen Whitfield on 01524 592972 if you have any queries or would like further information about LUPIN, or email us on email@example.com. Within the course clinical team, LUPIN is coordinated by Richard Slinger, Clinical Tutor, who you can email on firstname.lastname@example.org.

We want to make links with other local service user groups, and representatives of other groups are welcome at our meetings. We realise the potential of forming links with other groups and are happy to help publicise events you hold, and add links to your group to our web pages. For further details of how to link up with LUPIN please contact Jen.
Our meetings start around 11.00am and end by 3.30pm. We pay all participants travel expenses to attend meetings and provide a free lunch.
We aim to make LUPIN meetings as accessible as possible for everyone who wants to attend. If you have any specific requirements please do not hesitate to contact Jen to discuss them further.
