Newsletter Advertising

The combined Islington and Hackney Newsletter is distributed free to over 1,000 homes in the two boroughs, as well as to health professionals and antenatal classes locally.

The HINCT Newsletter is published four times a year in September, December, March and June. It is a valuable resource for our members, offering not only informative articles, but also serving as a handy reference guide to local activities, events and service prodviders. It is A5 in format, published in black and white, with a full colour cover. To download a recent issue, please see our branch homepage.

Each issue of the Newsletter is a result of hard work by a team of committed volunteers working in their spare time. Advertising revenue pays for the printing and paper used to produce the newsletter. NCT, including all of it's branches, is a non-profit making organisation.
