Welcome to Durham Branch

About Us

Run by local parents, we offer support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be across County Durham.

We can support you before, during and after your baby arrives; whether or not you attend NCT antenatal courses, there are opportunities to meet up, make friends and share experiences. We aim to provide a mixture of events and activities for both children and parents.

As well as running antenatal classes, we provide postnatal and breastfeeding support via local individuals and groups, and organise fundraising events including our very popular Nearly New Sales where you can pick up top-quality baby and children's clothes and equipment at bargain prices.

We also organise regular informal get-togethers for parents and children in two venues:

'Bumps & Babies' for expectant mothers and parents / carers with pre-walking babies. Dads are very welcome too.'Twins & Multiples Group' for parents / carers of twins, triplets or more.

If you are expecting a baby, or you have young children and would like to get to know other families in the area, then please come along to one of our events.

Another way of meeting other families in Durham is by volunteering with the Branch, whether you'd like to get involved with our Nearly New Sales, help with some back office work or help run one of our local groups, please get in touch for further information by emailing nns.durham@nct.org.uk, we have roles to suit everyone.

Alternatively you can contact us by phoning

You don't have to be an NCT member to go along to our events - our services and activities are open to everyone. However, if you find the NCT helpful, and want to help it continue to reach other parents, please consider becoming a member.

You can also volunteer for the NCT - have fun helping out with NCT branch activities and use your skills to support local parents whilst meeting new people.
