Become a member or renew your membership - and join our community of hundreds of international families.

"We would have been lost without the BCT when we arrived in Belgium with a 3 month old baby and a stroppy teenager. For my family it provided a space to build a 'family' of friends to share our ex-pat journey through thick and thin. It is a fabulous organisation."
