The NCT is the UK’s largest charity for people going through the life-changing experience of becoming a parent. We provide evidence-based information, support and a fantastic network of local branches run by volunteer mums and dads.

So join today to make new friends in your area, enjoy great family activities, gain access to relevant information and share your experiences of being a parent. Complete your membership online or find out more about the benefits of an NCT membership.

Friends of NCT

If you're coming up for renewal of your membership we would like to inform you of a new option available to you, becoming a Friend of NCT.

If you no longer need the services of NCT but wish to contribute to NCT's work in supporting and encouraging parents then you may wish to become a Friend of NCT. In doing so, you simply complete the Friends Form and may make a regular donation of your choice to NCT. Visit Become an NCT Friend, to find out more information along with the Friends Form. 

Alternatively you can still renew your membership as normal and receive all the emails, newsletters, priority entry to Nearly New Sales and use of the NCT House Register service. Membership costs £40 per year.  There is a reduced membership charge of £26 to members who volunteer for at least 12 hours per year. If you're interested in volunteering we would be delighted to hear from you - please email us at
