The BCT has several social and support networks, each of which deals with a special subject. There is the popular pregnant & new mums drop in or the new breastfeeding café and also groups dedicated to IVF, single parents, special needs children and more.
All of the groups bring together people that are in similar life situations. They meet up on a regular basis and provide friendship, exchange of information and support for their members. Our support groups are, like our playgroups, interest and local groups, open to all BCT members and they welcome new members at all times. Join us and meet others!
Groups are initiated and organised by enthusiastic members for members. To join one of these groups, please contact the groups organiser (find contact details in the BCT app on Twizzit).
If you are not yet a BCT member but would like to find out more about one of these groups, or if are a member and would like to set up a new support Group, just please contact our Groups Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.

(Future) Single Mums by choice
We are a group of single mothers by choice: solo moms who had a child without a partner, most of us with the help of a clinic and donor sperm, via embryo adoption or traditional adoption. Some of us were tired of waiting for Mr Right, of dating while hearing our biological clock ticking. Some of us already had a first child in a previous relationship. All of us have in common that we have longed for our babies for so long and love them beyond words. Our group is open to everyone who is thinking, trying, already pregnant or who has had a child as a single mom by choice.
PREGNANT AND NEW MUMS DROP-IN
This group is a warm, friendly place to make new friends and to share your experiences of becoming and being a new mum. A reason to get out of the house if everything seems too much or overwhelming or if you just need to see a friendly face.
Parents with challenges
Divorce and Separation
We would like to bring this important group back to life, so if you can help, please contact us at email@example.com.
A peer support group for mums and dads going through separations. It does does not offer legal advice but rather a platform to share experiences of fellow members and to discuss what helped them cope and, most importantly, help them realise they are not alone in this situation.
Whether your baby was there for one day, one month or longer, had surgeries, spent time under the blue light or was there to grow, we want to provide a place to meet as often as we can to talk to each other with understanding and to support each other in the ongoing plight NOT to make comparisons with babies who had a healthy start!
