Parent group

Join us - and each other

Being the UK’s largest charity for parents also means we’re the UK’s largest community of new parents.

By becoming NCT members, thousands of parents have formed lifelong friendships and support networks. Through us, they’ve shared experiences, excitement and inspiration during some of the most amazing times of their lives – and beyond.

Your membership donation will support our work in your community, and in local communities across the UK. Read on to find out how.

Your membership donation helps us:

  • campaign on behalf of parents to change the things that matter to them.

Our members say...

“After a fab course we decided to sign up for the membership mainly to build on the friendships we made during the antenatal sessions, but also partly to support the charity and the great work it does putting people together.

We’ve been out and about with our closest NCT branch and have both made some great friends, I know a good bunch of local dads that I regularly see, we often have a laugh over what our babies have been doing, at times it has even helped keep my sanity through some of the stressful times of parenthood and possibly even saved my relationship.

I shall be renewing my membership when it comes up and who knows, there may be another little one about in the future.”  

– Steven, Ealing branch
