The NCS programme offers young people, aged 15-17, a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something meaningful with their summer, as well as a chance to develop skills and take on new challenges that will set them up for adult life. They’ll also do something good for their local community, carrying out a project to support a cause they care about. Whilst the programme gives teens an opportunity to meet new people, if they want to go on NCS with their friends then the team will do their very best to get them booked on the same programme.
More information on the summer programme can be found below or on the NCS website;
Over a period of 2 or 3 weeks, they will;
- Meet new people
- Try new things
- Give back to their local community through voluntary action
- Take on new challenges
- Develop the skills and confidence to take on their next steps
- Generate experience for their university application, job/apprenticeship interview, CV and more
A place on NCS is worth around £1500. However, thanks to government funding for the programme, we only ask for a contribution of £50 to cover some basic costs. We want to ensure that everyone can do NCS so there are bursaries available if you need some help to cover the cost.
