Who Are We?

Our mission is to support parents through the first 1,000 days, to have the best possible experience of pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.


The Role

NCT Community Builders are at the heart of our local volunteer teams. You will engage with parents in the local community to understand where support is needed. You will help build a team of community volunteers who offer welcoming, and inclusive, events and activities that improve the wellbeing of parents.​

This is a flexible, home-based role that can fit around your availability.

This is a flexible role that can fit around your other commitments and availability​.

We ask that you can commit to 3 hours per week and that you can ideally volunteer for at least 6 months​.
