Do you have a few hours to spare? Would you like to join our branch team?

Volunteers, parents and expectant parents just like you, run our branch. You don’t need to take on huge tasks, just commit whatever time you can. Whatever your previous experience, it is almost certainly useful to the branch. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make friends and represent the NCT. You'll also get discounted NCT membership. Get in touch and get involved!

Other volunteer roles

Group Volunteers

We are looking for mums and dads to help run our weekly groups. These groups couldn't run without the volunteers who help set up, clear away and count money. You'll also help greet newcomers and make them feel welcome. This can be run on a rota basis, so you don't need to be free every week.

Nearly New Sale Volunteers

The Southampton NCT branch holds two Nearly New Sales each year. Each sale requires over 80 volunteers on the day, helping to set up, manage the event and clean up. We appreciate any amount of time you can give us. Your main benefit? You get to shop at the Preview Sale before general admission...and if you can stay to help us clear up, we'll also provide a light lunch for you as our thank you for your efforts. 

If you'd like to volunteer for the NNS then email

Breastfeeding Peer Supporters

If you have breastfed for at least three months and would like to support other mums, then why not join us as a peer supporter? You'll complete a short OCN accredited training course before starting your role.
