Helping Londoners Enforce Their Right to Live and Work in Safe, Healthy Environments
As winter begins to set in, the refugees are facing yet another tough time in Northern France. This time of year is particularly worrying for us, and the wellbeing of the refugees is of huge concern.
Our main aim is to keep as many people as warm as possible by distributing shelter and warm clothes, but we cannot do this without our wonderful volunteers. We are urgently appealing for more volunteers to come and help us continue with our vital work.
Refugees are relying on our support and we need you to make sure we don’t let them down.
Volunteering changes lives, will you help us to change more?

Message from NEU:
Ask your MP to #AskDamian
We’re asking MPs to ask the Education Secretary, Damian Hinds MP, to implement the recommendation of the teachers’ independent pay review body in full. Can you ask them, too?
NEU email tool for contacting MPs
In the run-up to the Budget – on October 29 – it is vital that we continue to apply pressure. Please ask your MP to #AskDamian to fully-fund and fully-implement the teacher pay rise and to fund schools properly.
In the meantime it is important that all teachers get the pay rise the Government announced nationally: 3.5% for main scale, 2% for upper pay scale, 1.5% for leadership scale. We will be sending out joint union guidance to reps outlining what they should get and giving them advice on speaking to their head teacher. This advice – jointly with ASCL, NAHT, UCAC and Voice – will also be sent to all head teachers and chairs of governors, and will also be available on our website.
The “Retired Teachers” webpage on this website has been updated.
The latest Campaign Bulletin has been added, plus the NPC London Region Newsletter.
