NCT Southend welcomes every new parent. Our local groups, activities and events are run by volunteers. We help forge friendships and raise money for all of NCT's work, locally and nationally. We know that there are local parents who would benefit from local activities. Unfortunately, we do not have enough volunteers in your area to help with regular local meet-ups or events. Can you help launch a local group? If you want to get involved and help bring local parents together, we'd love to have you. It could be as little as organising a regular coffee morning to helping raise money for NCT through our Nearly New Sales or Baby First Aid events. Find out more about volunteering with NCT or register your interest using the online form below. Looking for support? Even though there may not be any local activities at the moment, you can still find plenty of helpful information on our website. We have hundreds of free, evidenced-based articles covering: pregnancy, labour & birth, baby & toddler and life as a parent.
