Helping young people to fulfil their potential

We provide life-changing experiences

Delivering the National Citizen Service

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for 15-17 year olds, which brings together young people from different backgrounds to impact their community, learn new skills and achieve their potential.

At a time when teenagers are making big choices about their future, NCS is there to give them confidence and self-belief. Our graduates come out fired up about their future, open to other people around them and convinced that they can make their mark on the world.

What will I do with NCS?

1) Adventure

First you’ll get into the great outdoors, taking part in exhilarating activities that get the adrenaline pumping such as canoeing, ziplining or rock climbing

2) Skills

Next you’ll get to develop new skills for life, staying away from home and building your independence

3) Social Action

You’ll get the chance to make a real impact on your community, by designing a social action project to tackle an issue of your choice

4) Celebration

Finally, when you graduate you’ll get the chance to celebrate your achievements, and join the lifelong NCS family with access to support and resources for whatever path you choose in life
