NCT Peterborough is part of the UK’s largest charity for parents. We are run by volunteers and organise eventsequipment hire, campaigning and more. Some specialist services such as antenatal classes are provided by fully trained and qualified NCT Practitioners. ALL local parents are welcome to use our services and meet other parents at branch activities. Members get a quarterly newsletter and access to special discounts and offers. Find out more about us, including our contact details.

Our vision

Our vision is a world in which parents are valued and supported to build a strong society, believing that a child’s early years significantly impact upon the future they help to shape.

Our charitable purpose

  • We offer information and support in pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
  • We campaign to improve maternity care and ensure better services and facilities for new parents.
  • We aim to give every parent the chance to make informed choices.
  • We want to make sure that everyone has access to our services and activities.

We give parents accurate, impartial information so that they can decide what’s best for their family, and we introduce them to a network of local parents to gain practical and emotional support.

Life with babies and young children is more fun with supportive friends around you; so get in touch with us!

NCT Peterborough is run by volunteers all of which are also local parents.

All NCT activities are open to both members and non-members. 

Joining fees help fund our charity and give you several benefits.
