Without the support of our volunteers, the NCT cannot run! Please consider if you can help us – it doesn’t need to take up much of your time, and it’s a great way of meeting other like-minded local parents and carers! There are a number of volunteer roles, both in person and remote admin, available in the branch at the moment - if you are interested please contact volunteering@nct.org.uk or read more about volunteering here. We’d love you to join us!

Volunteers are essential to keeping our groups up and running. Can you provide a friendly face to greet parents? Help with setting up or putting away? Perhaps you have a friend you can volunteer with and work as a team or on a rota?

Our current groups are: Bumps & Babies, Crawlers & Explorers

We have previously also run local meet ups across Reading, Evening Bumps, and Walk & Talks. If you would be interested in starting one of these back up, or something new, please do get in touch.


The more volunteers we have, the more support we can offer parents.
