What we stand for & what we aim to achieve
NCS is a government-backed youth programme that runs across England and Northern Ireland. We exist to engage, unite and empower young people, building your confidence so you can go out there and achieve your dreams, no matter where you’re from or what your background is. Our programme is managed and supported by NCS Trust, our central team who are constantly working to make sure we deliver the most impactful experience we can to as many young people as possible.
Together, we’re tackling some of the biggest issues in our country:
Cultivating stronger, more integrated communities by fostering understanding between you and your neighbours from different backgrounds
Building essential skills for work and life, making sure you can get ahead and are prepared for whatever the future holds – think of it as investing in our country’s future talent.
Engaging you in social action in your community as well as the democratic process, creating more understanding of your responsibilities as a citizen and your potential to affect change.
We work with others to constantly evaluate every element of NCS, ensuring the programme is evolving to meet the needs of young people, communities and society as a whole. Take a look at some of the massive impacts we’ve already made here and some of our key reports and evaluations below.
