Honour our volunteers

Have your say

Volunteer’s Week, 1–12 June, is a time to honour the accomplishments of National Childbirth Trust volunteers both past and present.

Volunteers have been at the heart of NCT since 1956. Beginning as a small group of new mothers offering their time to improve childbirth practices, we are now fortunate to have over 10,000 dedicated people volunteering on our behalf.

Today, NCT supports parents across the first thousand days – through pregnancy, birth and becoming a mum or dad.

As our work has evolved over the past 60 years, these amazing women people have led us every step of the way.

From coordinating NCT’s programmes for newly settled refugee and asylum seekers, to packing bags at nearly new sales or fundraising for better mental health support, every NCT volunteer has influenced our success, and for this I thank you.
