Getting Involved with the Brighton & Hove branch

Our branch is run by unpaid volunteers. Volunteering with our team is a great way to learn new skills (great for your CV), make new friends and provide a valuable service to parents (to-be) in your local area. Some roles require just a few hours per month to be carried out from home at a time to suit you.

Ideally it helps to attend our team meetings; we're a friendly bunch and meet monthly in Brighton to plan our activities - this usually involves tea and cake! We have a mix of enthusiastic new team members plus others experience who can provide support and guidance. Most roles don't require you to be an NCT member. However, you save money on your membership if you volunteer just 12 hours per year, discounted further if you are on a very low income, or waived completely in very exceptional circumstances.

We are currently looking for people to fill the following roles:

  • Advertising Coordinator for our quarterly branch Newsletter Pier Support. You would deal with businesses who wish to advertise via email and social media; we have a database of contacts already and an on-line booking form. You would also liaise closely with the treasurer and newsletter editor.
  • Membership Coordinator you would welcome new NCT Members locally by sending a welcome letter, copy of our newsletter Pier Support, and branch activity flyer. Additionally you would send a monthly email update to all members detailing our branch activities and news. This can be done from your home at a time to suit you.
  • Bumps & Babies Volunteers in Hove to assist with setting up, attending & clearing away at our group from 12:45 - 2:30pm on Wednesdays during term-time. If you cannot commit to attending weekly then fortnightly or monthly would be fine.
  • Bumps & Babies Volunteers in Saltdean to assist with setting up, attending & clearing away at our group from 13:15 - 3:30pm every Wednesday. If you cannot commit to attending weekly then fortnightly or monthly would be fine.
  • Nearly New Sales Volunteers to assist with running the events (those who help during the sale are able to shop at our pre-sale before NCT Members and the general public). This involves a time commitment of around 6 hours approximately 4 times per year.
  • Volunteer Coordinator to help us to recruit sufficient volunteers to continue our branch's activities
