Are you a UNISON member working for South Yorkshire Police under the age of 27? (under the age of 27 on Sunday, 12th May 2019) Would you like to be more active in the branch?


UNISON’s 2019 National Young Members’ Weekend is to be held at the Hilton Hotel, Belfast. It starts at 3pm on Friday 10th May and ends 12:30pm on Sunday 12th May.


What is on offer?


The weekend includes plenary sessions, education and training, discussions and social activities. It’s a great way to network and find out how to get active.


The trip includes accommodation for Friday and Saturday nights, dinner on Friday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Travel costs will be covered by the branch.


Members who wish to bring their partners


We have negotiated a rate of £111 for the weekend for partners. This includes accommodation with the partner for Friday and Saturday night, dinner on Friday and Saturday night, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Payment must be made in advance and will not be covered by the branch


Members who wish to bring their children


Children up to 10 years old are charged an additional £30 in total for dinner on the Friday and Saturday night. Children over the age of 11 are charged an additional £45 in total for dinner on the Friday and Saturday night. Lunch is provided as part of any crèches provision. Travel, accommodation and costs for children to attend will be covered by the branch.


Crèche provision is available to delegates for children up to the age of 16 years.


What do I need to do?


As this is a union activity facility time would not be granted by the force so you would have to go in your own time or use annual leave. If you feel you would like to be our young members branch officer and would like to attend or require further information please contact myself for further info or check out the following link:




All we ask is for a commitment from you once you are back to be active in the branch (for this facility time is granted by the force) and provide a report back to the branch committee on your trip and what you have gained from it.


You need to get two other UNISON members to nominate you to attend and nominations need to be with the branch office before the 24th January 2019.


Kind Regards,

Emma Schofield

UNISON Branch Secretary
