This role is currently vacant.

The newsletter is on hold until a new volunteer is found!! Can you help?

However, we are always looking for articles, if you're interested in contributing, please email

All volunteers are covered by the conditions of the Volunteer Policy & Charter.

The NCT wants all parents-to-be and new parents to understand that we are a charity able to help them with information, services and support. Every branch newsletter helps the NCT achieve this goal. You really do make a difference to all parents in your local area, demonstrating to parents, members, potential members, volunteers, specialist workers, health and children’s services professionals that your branch is the local FACE of the NCT.

The Branch Newsletter Editor is:

  • able to gather together a team to produce a local branch newsletter – this may include an advertising coordinator, feature writers, diary coordinator, designers, photographers and illustrators;
  • able to edit copy and consider layout to put together an interesting and useful publication for branch members and as a promotional tool.

A successful Newsletter Editor is confident, persuasive and creative, making the branch newsletter an interesting mix of local and charity wide stories, information and advertising relevant to the readership. Being the Newsletter Editor may be challenging at times, but it is fun, interesting and worthwhile. Access to MS Publisher is an advantage but not essential as NCT templates are also provided in MS Word format

Time Commitment

There will be times of the year when more hours will be required, e.g. prior to newsletter copy deadlines The NCT Volunteer & Member Profile 2008 showed that 47% of volunteers spent up to 2 hours in a typical week and a further 42% spent 2 to 8 hours on their volunteering.
