When you are a member of the NCT, as well as supporting the vital work of the charity, you are also entitled to a number of member benefits - we hope you find something of interest.

 Mums and Babies

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.

Membership benefits

  • Meet new friends through your local NCT branch – Wherever you live, we have a branch in your area where you can meet other parents going through the same life changes as you. Many of our members make lifelong friends through their local NCT branch, as they support each other through the most momentous time in their lives and in the years that follow.

  • Regular newsletters from your local NCT branch - You'll be kept up-to-date about upcoming parent and baby events, courses and support groups in your local are.

  • Partners join for no extra cost – You and your partner can have a joint membership at no extra cost, so you both have access to information, events and support through NCT.

  • Recieve a monthly e-newsletters NCT Matters – Our nationally-recognised membership magazine is packed full of informative articles on everything from pregnancy through to early parenthood.

  • NCT Members Club - As a member you'll also be part of NCT Members Club, with free access to a collection of money-saving rewards, discounts and services covering everything from the weekly shop to maternity clothes to shoes for toddlers, from cinema tickets to laptops, and household bills to holidays (with or without the kids). There’s even a free legal advice line… just in case. All intended to make life as a new mum or dad just that little bit easier.

  • Becoming a member is a way of saying YES to supporting parents – NCT represents the needs and priorities of parents across the UK, at both Government and local policy levels, to ensure continued improvements in parent services. Your membership also helps NCT to continue to deliver services such as our busy helplines and to support disadvantaged parents through a range of practical outreach projects.
