What is NCS?

Is it for me?

In one word – YES! NCS is a chance for 15 to 17-year-olds to come together and achieve amazing things.

Let's face it – life's too short to be stuck indoors. So why not kick-start your future with a summer you'll never forget! Thanks to government backing, the most you'll ever pay for this unbeatable experience is £50, but this cost could be less or even free depending on your circumstances and local NCS provider.

When, where & how?

NCS takes place in your local community outside of term time, so no matter what your commitments are or what your summer holiday plans might be, just register and we'll get you on the next available NCS spot.

Who will run my programme?

NCS is really proud to work with some amazing organisations across the UK.

NCS is delivered by a series of charities, college consortia and Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise (VCSE) and private sector partnerships across England.

All NCS staff are DBS checked (previously CRB) and are trained to work with young people.

The programme is risk assessed and regularly quality assured.

Once you've secured your spot, your local NCS provider will contact you to discuss things further and to answer any other questions you have about NCS or the programme.
