National Childbirth Trust (NCT) Woking
The Woking branch of the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) is very active in helping young mothers in the Borough. Woking NCT offers practical help, such as nearly-new sales of baby equipment and toys. It also organises training courses in First Aid and child protection and is a great sources of information and advice. Last year, NCT Woking launched their ‘Baby Bundle’ scheme: emergency packs of essential items for newborns and their mothers are prepared and distributed on request to pregnant women and new mothers who cannot provide these items themselves. Given that many of the items are donated, each Baby Bundle requires a financial input of around £18.50. Our book sale in November 2017 raised £120, which paid for about 7 ‘Baby Bundle’ emergency packs for new mothers and their babies. We also provide some service support.
