mum and baby groupVolunteers, 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 using your experience and skills or learn something new. It is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, and support the charity. Get in touch and get involved.

We always welcome new volunteers to keep the branch running and help us continue to run our local activities, and to raise money to support NCT's national activities (such as training antenatal teachers and breastfeeding counsellors, running the Early Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Lines etc).

Opportunities this month

  • Help out on a Tuesday morning at Bumps, Babies & Little Bees - serving refreshments, setting up or clearing away.
  • Facebook & Twitter savvy? Join our team as social media coordinator - could work well as jobshare.
