Welcome to the Barnet District web page

NEU's Barnet District was formed on 1st January 2019 following the amalgamation of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).  Barnet District is the largest NEU District in London.

I hope you find these pages useful and please let me know if there is anything else you would like added.

Barnet hardship fund

The Hardship Fund does not provide strike pay. A sum of money may be granted from the Fund to members who are suffering financial hardship as a result of striking.

Applying to the Fund

To apply following a strike or strikes (Barnet District members only):

Apply after the deduction has been made and you have received your payslip including the deduction.

Please complete the form below and submit this with an electronic copy of the payslip(s) that show the deduction(s) to [email protected] with the subject : Hardship Application <your name>

Applications must be submitted within one month of the deduction.

As we are volunteers, we do not have the resources to acknowledge applications and we cannot guarantee how quickly we can make payments.

Donating to the fund

For details of how to donate please also email Barnet District. Please also confirm any donation by email, with a subject heading "Barnet SHF Donation" so that we can check that we have received it.

NEU Trust fund

If you were already facing financial difficulties before the strikes you may wish to also apply to NEU Trust Fund
