National Citizen Service (NCS) is an experience to change your life. More than 200,000 young people have already said YES to NCS. If you’re 15 to 17 years old, this is your chance to make lasting friendships, embrace the outdoors and learn the skills they don’t teach in class.
The most exciting and rewarding times of your life are closer than you think…..
WHEN IS NCS?
NCS runs during Autumn Spring and Summer. NCS runs out of term time, so there’s an NCS programme for everyone. No matter what your commitments in the year or what your holiday plans are, just register and we’ll get you on the next suitable programme you can do. Places are still available this Spring and Summer Holiday!!
WHAT HAPPENS ON NCS?
NCS is split into 3 phases that will involve a short adventure away from home, developing new skills and meeting new people, team-building activities, and finally a unique experience to come up with your own project.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Because NCS is backed by the government, it costs only £50 to take part, covering all accommodation, transport and meals (during the residential phase), activities and equipment. Bursaries are also available. You pay this fee when you sign up to confirm your place on the programme.
