NCT's vision is a world where parents are valued and supported to build a strong society. There is no job more important than being a parent. The first 1,000 days are crucial to later life chances. Being a parent can be challenging and isolating too. NCT support thousands of new and expectant parents. They share knowledge, make friends and come together to campaign for change. The Charity helps 2,000,000 parents every year through trusted information via their website, support line and expert-led antenatal and parenting courses. Their network of 6,000 volunteers reach 15,000 parents each week at local groups, activities and courses.
