Benevolence

Grateful words from North East members

“I waited until I was at my lowest point before I sought help from my union. I was really worried about getting in touch with the NASUWT but from the moment I did I was fully supported without judgement and wish I had rang and asked for help earlier”

“The NASUWT have supported me with a cheque for several hundreds of pounds to see me through a very difficult time and since getting in touch with the NASUWT, my life has changed from being on the edge of giving up a 16 year teaching career to feeling excited about the next chapter in my teaching career”

Please telephone the NASUWT Regional Centre on 0191 5195300
