Welcome to the pages of the NCT Ashford and District Branch!
Welcome to the Ashford and District branch in Kent. The branch is led by volunteers and offer local parents and parents-to-be invaluable support, services and NCT events, to help them get the most out of their new roles. You do not need to be a member to access our services and events! You can also engage with us on our main Facebook page 'NCT Ashford Kent'.
We run regular, seasonal family events as well as a weekly Bumps and Babies group (Facebook 'NCT Bumps and Babes Ashford Kent''. Please see our Events page for more details.
The branch runs bi-annual Nearly New Sales which are very popular and a great place to grab a bargain, or even sell your pre-loved baby and child items. We also provide local parents and carers with Baby and Child First Aid courses, in conjunction with the British Red Cross. Keep an eye on our Events page or our Facebook page for more details.
The branch works closely with local NCT antenatal teachers and postnatal leaders, as well as Breastfeeding Counsellors who can advise on all aspects of infant feeding. If you are experiencing difficulties with feeding, please contact Ali or Leah (contact details below) and they will be happy to provide advice or even visit you at home. We also provide hospital-grade breast pump hire, our trained agent will be happy to help.
