We are the Croydon Branch of the NCT. Our branch is run by local parent volunteers, offering support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be. Our area includes Old Coulsdon, Coulsdon, Purley, South Croydon, Central Croydon, South Norwood and Thornton Heath.

We organize a range of services and activities, including antenatal classes, nearly new sales, social events and postnatal support groups such as our popular bumps and babies group, mums' night out and more. We also offer practical support for those crucial first weeks as a new parent including breastfeeding support, breast pump hire and Valley Cushion hire.

All of our events and services are open to members and non-members, regardless of your parenting choices. We’d love to hear from you, whether you’re breastfeeding or bottle-feeding your baby, have had a natural or complicated birth, are new to the area or have lived here all your life. If you think the NCT is just for a certain type of parent, think again! We’re here for everybody, and aim to support you to become the parent you want to be.

For more information about the services we offer please browse our web pages. You can also find out more by contacting us at croydon@nct.org.uk, or if you know which service you’re interested in, visit our Contacts page to email a volunteer directly. If you’re interested in booking an antenatal course, please email Claire at bookings4a@nct.org.uk or call the National Helpline on 0300 330 0700.
