1. The best employment insurance available
Why insure your car, house, holiday but not the thing that pays for them? Like any form of insurance, we can’t guarantee you won’t have a problem but we do guarantee the best available help and support if you have a problem at work with clients, colleagues or those in charge.
2. A strong voice
Napo is the recognised collective voice for staff across probation. No matter where you work or who pays your wages Napo is a recognised voice, negotiating T&Cs and making the links between treating staff well and outcomes for clients.
3. The professional champions
Across probation, Napo is the credible voice on professional standards. We run professional conferences for members; publish the Probation Journal and the Family Court Journal, and represent the professional voice to decision makers.
We take the arguments for high professional standards, fair and appropriate funding and dignity at work to decision makers – via parliament, national and regional assemblies and into local communities. Napo makes sure the probation and family court services, and those who work in them, are seen heard and respected.
5. The inclusive union
Napo is effective because we’re a listening organisation that genuinely knows and reflects our members’ views and priorities. Because we’re small with a history of actively promoting inclusion we have flat structures, open to everyone. Our policies and priorities are set by our Annual General Meeting, which doubles as a professional development event you’re invited to attend. We also have numerous networks, linking people with similar interests and priorities which contribute to policy outcomes. We do not give money to political parties.
Professional Champions: Napo is proud to be the recognised, collective voice on professional standards in both Probation and the Family Courts. We run professional conferences, publish the Family Court Journal and Probation Journals and represent the professional voice to decision makers. Napo takes the arguments for high professional standards, fair and appropriate funding, and dignity of work to decision makers via parliament, national and regional assemblies, the media, and into local communities. Napo is pledged to making sure the Probation and Family Court services – and our members who work in them – are seen, heard and respected.
You can guarantee your voice is heard: Somewhere within Napo you can find a safe and secure place to raise your ideas, thoughts and concerns. You’re never on your own in Napo.
We get results: not every time because we’re not miracle workers, but every year hundreds of members threatened with dismissal or disciplinary action are protected by Napo representatives: we win thousands of pounds in compensation for members injured, discriminated against or badly treated at work; and we make workplaces safer, more secure, and more rewarding through collective representation.
