Volunteering

Volunteering - we need you!

Every aspect of the Hants NE Branch is run by volunteers, and we are always in need of extra help to maintain our events and activities.
You may be interested in a particular role within the branch or simply have a few hours to help out at an event or Nearly New Sale. Whatever you can offer, please get in touch. You will be volunteering with other local mums and dads so it's a great way to make new friends and also excellent for the CV. Get in touch and get involved. Branch.HantsNE@nct.org.uk

Volunteers, parents and expectant parents just like you, run our branch. You don’t need to take on huge tasks, just commit whatever time you can or your previous experience and skills. It is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, and represent the NCT.
