Volunteers needed! 

All of the activities that NCT Reading put on are organised and run by local volunteers, and at the moment we have a number of vacancies that we need to fill. You don’t need lots of experience or training to help us out – just an enthusiasm for the work that we do. Our roles are open to anyone – mums, dads, grandparents, students, jobseekers, or anyone who just wants to get involved.  Find out more.
