NCT Epsom, Sutton & District is a powerful network of parents in Surrey who could be your customers.

About the NCT

Epsom, Sutton & District Branch is one of the largest branches of the NCT in the country with over 1,200 active members. These are pregnant women or parents of young children in the areas of Epsom and Ewell, Sutton and Cheam, Worcester Park, Tadworth , Kingwood, Walton on the Hill, Banstead, Wallington and Morden. It is without doubt a highly targeted and lucrative audience and our advertising opportunities offer local businesses valuable access to this audience.

As well as running antenatal courses, we are a very active branch with a full agenda of members’ meetings, social events, Nearly New Sales, annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic and AGM. We run 2 weekly toddler groups in Carshalton and Epsom, and have a very active 'Bumps and Babes' weekly meet up in Sutton. We also publish a newsletter 3 times a year covering subjects of interest to local parents and adverts of local companies of interest to NCT members. We help to improve facilities for mums and babies in the area by taking part in local health care committees. We campaign for better conditions and more parental choice through initiatives such as Breastfeeding Awareness Week and by working with local health visitors and midwives. All of this is run entirely by volunteers who want to help other parents to enjoy their birth and parenting experience and to continue the good work of the NCT.
