South Gloucestershire District
Welcome to the South Gloucestershire District web pages. Use the contact information on this page to get in touch about casework, local meetings and training, annual conference and other issues. New casework referrals should be made via the NEU Employment AdviceLine.
The District Secretary normally undertakes union duties on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the Assistant District Secretary on Wednesdays, during school terms. Additionally, the Secretary may be available to attend pre-arranged meetings on Mondays. On the other days in the week, we are both working in schools. Replies to emails and phone calls may be delayed until we're next doing union duties, so urgent matters should go to the NEU South West Regional Office (see below).
Correspondence can be sent to the District at: Unit 3b, The Old Library, Trinity Road, Bristol. BS2 0NW
However due to COVID-19, we are mainly working from home, so contact should be via email or telephone rather than post, as officers will only visit the office occasionally.

If you are, then see the Bristol and South Glos Young Educator Network Facebook page for exciting events for all local young education professionals, and also for those who have been an education worker for less than five years.
