We are proud to be a local delivery provider for the National Citizen Service programme (NCS) with hundreds of young people successfully completing the programme across Sussex in the last 4 years.
The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a life changing experience for 15, 16 and 17 year olds and is available to all young people in England, whether you attend a pupil referral unit or a school or college that is state-funded, special or independent.
NCS is a Government scheme to encourage young people to become more active in their local communities. During a four week programme, including two residential weeks away from home, they build upon their life skills by developing teamwork, communication and independent living skills. Each group designs a social action volunteering project for a charity of their choice to help enhance their local community and make a difference, which further develops their confidence, self-awareness and responsibility.
You can also call the NCS contact centre on 01233 600 138 (Monday to Saturday 9am to 8pm and Sunday 10am to 6pm)
“NCS has taught me to never give up on something that you really want, however hard its gets and to never leave an idea unexplored. I personally feel that the NCS adventure will have a huge impact on my life from now on as I have gained loads of new friends and from the skills I have learnt it will help me to achieve what I want to achieve.
And it all started with a YES!”
