NCT branches are your local parent support network, helping you become the parent you want to be
**Next Nearly New Sale: Saturday 8th October at Titchfield Community Centre**
Hello and welcome to Fareham & District NCT.
Our 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. By contacting us you will find out about:
Support networks for parents and parents-to-be - so we can help support you before, during and after your baby arrives; Whether or not you attend NCT antenatal or postnatal courses in your area, or whether you're an NCT member or not, there'll be NCT volunteers who offer you opportunities to meet up and make friends and share experiences at social events, Bumps and Babies sessions, and other support groups.
NCT Nearly New Sales - the cost of kitting out your baby or toddler can run into thousands. NCT Nearly New Sales are the perfect solution - top-quality baby and children's clothes and equipment at bargain prices straight from their loving owners.
NCT volunteering opportunities - have fun helping with NCT branch activities, use your skills to support local parents and meet new people from your community. COME AND JOIN OUR TEAM!
Following our Annual Members Meeting we urgently need some new volunteers to come and join our team. The following roles are currently vacant;
MEMBERSHIP COORDINATOR – welcomes new members via (standard) email, providing information about branch activities and resources. Unfortunately the branch haven’t had the resource to fulfil this role for a few years. Typically this would take no more than 30 minutes a week.
GENERAL ENQUIRIES CONTACT - This person receives the email enquiries for the branch and directs them to the right person. Typically this is an ad hoc role, but the email needs to be checked a couple of times a week.
EVENT ADVERTISING - This involves promoting regular and annual events within the branch. This can involve coordinating printing leaflets and posters and distributing them locally. This could be done by more than one person. Typically this would take a few hours a month (often meeting with one or more committee members, usually involving tea or wine!)
All of these roles (with the exception of bumps and babies coordinator) can be done in the evening or whenever you have a free moment. All the roles are undertaken by volunteers, it's a lovely social way to meet new friends and to help out new parents.
Local NCT social and fundraising events - giving you the chance to meet other parents while supporting your local branch and the wider NCT. Our next events are:
BUMPS AND BABIES AND BEYOND GROUP: runs every Friday morning from 10.00am - 12.00noon at Titchfield Community Centre, Mill Lane, Titchfield.
