Volunteering

Volunteering is a brilliant way to meet new people and learn new skills.  Can you spare an hour or two either on a regular or ad-hoc basis?  We're always looking for new volunteers who are friendly and welcoming.  Without volunteers the branch will not be able to provide valuable support and services to you and other local parents.  There are many ways volunteers can get involved in branches- types of roles available include; being part of the Nearly New Sales Team, Tea Party Host, Bumps and Babes Volunteer, Baby First Aid Coordinator, Newsletter Volunteer, Fund Raising Volunteer, Cheeky Monkey Tea Party Coordinator, Dad's Group Volunteer, General Volunteer.  If you'd like to find out more about the range of opportunities available within the Dulwich & District NCT Branch then get in touch with our Chair, Natalie, at coordinator.dulwich@nct.org

NCT Antenatal and Postnatal Courses

Our Branch runs courses for parents, both before and after birth, led by NCT trained workers to help you prepare for birth and early parenthood.

  • Signature and Essentials courses are designed to help you to prepare for labour, birth and those rollercoaster first days with your baby
  • Refresher antenatal courses for mums who already have a child but want to brush up on their knowledge or look at choosing a different birth this time around
  • Postnatal 'Early Days' courses for mums who want to feel more confident in their new role as a parent.
  • Introducing Solids courses for babies 3-6 months covering everything you want to know about introducing other foods to your baby

Antenatal classes need to be booked early in your pregnancy. All courses are listed on the NCT website, just enter your due date and post code and register your interest.

Many find that the friends they make on the courses are there to support and help them for years afterwards. Whether or not you join a course your local NCT branch offers you opportunities to make friends and share experiences at tea groups, bumps and babies sessions and other events.

For advice about what is available in your area and what might suit you best contact us at coordinator.dulwich@nct.org.uk. For questions about courses please contact bookings4h@nct.org.uk. 

Volunteer

Volunteers: We need you!

We would LOVE to expand the parent support we can offer locally and to be able to keep what we have running at the moment in place. To do this we need volunteers. Roles vary in the time commitment needed and we have volunteer specs. Get in touch with coordinator.dulwich@nct.org.uk if you areinterested in anything here and we will send you an overview of the role for you to think about. Showing interest isn’t agreeing to the role, don't worry we promise we won’t hound you if you decide it's not right for you.

Roles available:

Coffee morning hosts : Attend and make people feel welcome at the monthly meet ups. Could be a good opportunity for an NCT group to host.

Bumps & babies group helpers : Helping our group co-ordinator run the monthly  group. We would love this to run once a week - can you help make this happen?  You will need to meet and make everyone feel welcome,  put out toys, tidy away, serving coffee and tea and chat. May also include cover/running it from time to time. Could be a good opportunity for an NCT group to host.
