NCT Tower Hamlets

New parents searching for antenatal classes and postnatal friendship often turn to the NCT. This national charity offers a well-established network of mums locally and Tower Hamlets is one of the most active boroughs in London!

From courses and advice to meet-ups and special events, the NCT (National Childcare Trust) is a great way to make friends, find support and widen your social circle.

NCT Antenatal Courses

Parents-to-be evenings

Met up with local new parents and chat to some existing members of the NCT and find out what you can get involved in once your baby arrives. The meetings currently take place on the third Tuesday of the month, from 7.30pm in Canary Wharf.

Nearly New Sales

Pick up a bargain, or pass on your used baby goods.  The Tower Hamlets NCT Nearly New Sales are held twice a year. Come along and bag yourself some ‘nearly new’ goods, get involved in the local raffle, or why not take part and have a stall yourself. Contact the NCT if you are interested in having a table.

Social Activities for Mums, Dads and their children

Including “Mum’s Night Out,” and regular Coffee Mornings in E2, E3, E14 and E1W. Contact details, locations and further information can be found here or through the yahoo group mentioned above.


Get Involved

The NCT Tower Hamlets is run entirely by volunteers. The committee meets regularly and they are a friendly bunch of ladies, who always welcome new people to the meetings and are always looking for more volunteers.

      I don’t run the NCT group but if you ever need information in the future its best to look on their Facebook page I think.
