Equality and Diversity

Share this


Napo is the largest recognised trade union in both Cafcass and the Probation Service. To ensure we continue and fight as an independent and vibrant trade union and advance the collective professional interests of our members we need to build our membership base and increase activism.  It is recognised that within Napo organising activity varies from branch to branch. Organising is crucial to any successful recruitment initiative. These webpages will help  support your branch develop a comprehensive ‘organising’ strategy so that we can defend the individual and collective interests of our members and create opportunities that encourage members to get actively involved in their branches.

Staff Networks

There are currently three staff Networks DAWN (Disability, Advocacy Wellbeing Network), PiPP (Pride in Prison and Probation which covers minority Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity), and RISE (Racial Inclusion and striving for Equality, covering Black Asian and Minority Ethnic matters).

They are open to staff who are employed throughout NOMS (Now HM Prisons and Probation Service) as well as colleagues from CRCs and the contracted estate but unfortunately not Cafcass which is covered by a different department. The Networks are for everyone whether you identify with the protected characteristics or not and we would encourage as many of you to register as possible.
