Congratulations to Julia Robinson, our amazing Postnatal Co-ordinator, for winning the NCT Star Award for the most Innovative Volunteer.

Julia established a series of NCT Cafes in 11 different locations around the city with more in the pipeline. She has made an enormous difference to many local parents in communities in Bristol that NCT had previously failed to reach. Julia has also been instrumental in promoting the cafes through social media sites.
