Community Builder

We're the charity that supports people as they become parents. NCT Community Builders are at the heart of our local volunteer teams.

You will engage with parents in the local community to understand where support is needed. You will build a team of community volunteers who offer welcoming, and inclusive events and activities that help parents feel confident, connected and safe.

This is a flexible, home-based role that can fit around your availability.
