We are the charity that supports people as they become parents. Our vision is that everyone who becomes a parent feels confident, connected, and safe because we believe parents help build the foundations of the future. Every year NCT supports over 250,000 parents on their unique journeys through pregnancy, birth, infant feeding, and into early parenthood. We connect, inform and support parents through our antenatal and postnatal courses, peer support programmes, and community-based events. We provide access to evidence-based information through our website and free Infant Feeding Support Line 365-days a year.


This is a time of change and opportunity for NCT and as the Chair of our Board, you will be integral in helping us achieve our aims, working with an exceptionally engaged, strategic, diverse and open Board of Trustees, as well as a highly motivated community of staff, practitioners, volunteers, peer supporters and students. 

We are looking for an exceptional leader who is ambitious and committed to the work of NCT with the vision and skills to lead the NCT Board and drive us forward. Wherever your professional skills and experience lie, you will bring significant governance experience and the ability to navigate complex external and internal drivers, balance diverse perspectives and foster collaboration around shared goals. How you bring about your influence will be more important than your subject knowledge in this role, but you will be a first-class communicator and ambassador who will inspire others and help us further our goals to extend our engagement and impact with parents.

NCT is committed to social justice and equity and diversity, believing inclusion is everyone’s responsibility. We celebrate diversity, challenge inequity and are taking positive action to build an environment so all our people can thrive, and we can best represent and meet the needs of the pregnant women, new parents and families we serve. As Chair, your own commitment to this will be absolutely critical.

Parents help build foundations of the future. If you are motivated to be part of an ambitious charity, making a real difference, we hope you will be inspired to find out more.
