How We Can Help

  • Our team of volunteers aim to provide you with as many ways and means of creating a support network via our regular meet ups as possible.
  • We have dedicated Homebirth support volunteers, who can offer help and advice within your local area.
  • Waltham Forest has many outlets of support for new parents and a great many breastfeeding support groups: our local NCT breastfeeding counsellor Kate can offer advice and reassurance.
  • Our quarterly newsletter provides you with local news and an insight into life of local parents.
  • Nearly New Sales - The cost of kitting out your baby or toddler can be very expensive. The Waltham Forest NCT Nearly New Sales are the perfect solution - offering top-quality baby and children's clothing and equipment at bargain prices straight from their loving owners. We hold four Nearly New Sales a year, so why not find out when the next sale is and grab a bargain!
