Puddle Ducks are the proud sponsor of our Big Push events, combating loneliness in new parents.

Puddle Ducks provide high quality swimming lessons to babies and children from birth and sponsor our Big Push events.

Founded by two mums Tracy Townend and Jo Stone, they teach over 20,000 babies and children to swim, be safe and develop water confidence right across the country via a network of dedicated franchisees.

Puddle Ducks have been a corporate partner of ours since 2015, sponsoring Big Push events and supporting NCT Volunteer Branches. Since the launch of this partnership Puddle Ducks helped support thousands of parents combat loneliness and raise awareness of perinatal mental health issues.

Tracy Townend, Co-founder of Puddle Ducks says:

“Our relationship with NCT is very important to Puddle Ducks. We deal with new parents every day and we know personally the pressures put on them and the pressures they put on themselves. We hope that through The Big Push we will reach a wider audience and show them that it is OK to feel overwhelmed, that they aren’t alone and even be able to put them in touch with other new parents who may be feeling the same or can offer them empathy. We are very proud to sponsor The Big Push.”
