Basel Children Trust
The BCT is a non-profit, voluntary organization with a membership of around 250 families, representing many nationalities and cultures with English as the common spoken language. Our mission is to give help, support, and information to expectant parents and families with young children to enable them to make informed choices about birth and parenthood. Founded in 1992, the BCT today has a large membership representing over 30 different nations as well as many different parenting traditions and styles. For many in the community whose extended families live elsewhere, the BCT provides a vital support network. Through its social and educational events, support and play groups, monthly newsletter and website, the BCT support and informs the community as well as fostering life-long friendships for both parents and children.
