Welcome to Southampton NCT branch - your local parent support network
The Southampton branch is led by local volunteer parents. We offer parents and parents-to-be support, services and put on great events. Southampton NCT covers the postcodes SO14-SO19, SO30 & SO31.
There are many ways you can get involved:
- Stay and Play! Come along and make new friends at our local social groups including Saturday Family Group and Bumps and Babes
- Find out about our Antenatal and Refresher courses or our First Aid courses
- Nearly New Sales - the cost of kitting out your baby or toddler can run into thousands. Come along to our SORTED Nearly New Sale for top-quality baby and children’s clothes and equipment at bargain price.
- Get support and information (breastfeeding, weaning, homebirth, caesarean, postnatal)
- NCT volunteering opportunities – have fun helping with NCT branch activities, use your skills to support local parents and meet new people
- Find out about our cloth nappy library, run with the Southampton Real Nappy Network

Volunteers, parents and expectant parents just like you, run our branch. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, make friends and represent the NCT. 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.
