Welcome to NCT Chester - the local support group who aim to help you become the parent you want to be.

The Chester branch is run by local volunteer parents for local parents and parents-to-be, offering support, information and friendship. We cover postcodes CH1 - CH5 - which is Chester and the surrounding areas, plus Deeside.

The branch runs a series of ante-natal and breastfeeding classes, run at weekends or evenings. We also offer refresher antenatal courses for subsequent pregnancies. When your baby has arrived, there is a post-natal discussion course, which enables you to share and explore your experiences of new motherhood - and make more new friends. Please contact Nicola Bazeley (contact details below) for full details of all available courses.

The branch also organises various activities throughout the year which include coffee mornings, get-togethers at local child-friendly venues, a book club and quiz nights. We also produce regular newsletters (NatChat) which contain local information, articles and advertise local suppliers.

We hold 3 Nearly New Sales throughout the year, which are always very popular. The next Nearly New Sale date is confirmed for Saturday 1st March 2014 at Blacon High School. Here you can buy quality, used clothes, toys and baby equipment for your 0-5 children. We also sell maternity clothes and books at the sales too. The sales are an ideal way too to sell on your clothes, toys and equipment when you no longer have need for them. Please click here for the Sellers Registration Pack.

Back in October 2011, NCT Chester launched Breastfeeding Friendly Chester, a scheme aimed at providing parents with information on locations across Chester which have signed commitments to make breastfeeding friendly families welcome. The scheme now boasts 65 venues with more on the way! Check out the BFF page for more information.

NCT events and services are open to all parents and parents-to-be. For parents that have particular needs or access requirements, including disabled parents, we do our best to ensure that these needs are met. If you have particular needs or access requirements that it would be helpful for us to know about, please contact us to discuss how these can be met.
