We are excited to be working with LSA this year to deliver an unforgettable summer experience for students in Year 11  

The NCS programme offers young people, aged 16-17, a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something meaningful with your summer break, as well as a chance to develop skills and take on new challenges that will set you up for adult life. You will also do something good for your local community, carrying out a project to support a cause you care about. We've seen first hand what an amazing feeling of accomplishment and increased confidence this brings. Last August, teenagers on NCS donated 200,000 hours of their time to help rebuild their communities after the first lockdown, showing what a difference young people can make when they work together towards a goal..

Over a period of 2 or 3 weeks you will;

Meet new people

 Try new things

 Give back to your local community through voluntary action

 Take on new challenges

Develop the skills and confidence to take on your next steps

 Generate experience for your university application, job/apprenticeship interview or CV and more!


NCS is all about helping YOU realise their potential by giving you a taste of independence and loading you up with new skills that set you up to achieve your future goals, whatever they may be.

We would normally attend school to give you an assembly and allow you the chance to express your interest in coming away with us. Hopefully, we will be attending LSA, either virtually or in person to talk more about the NCS programme. We'll answer any questions you may have (at a safe distance, of course)

A place on NCS is worth around £1500. However, thanks to government funding for the programme, we only ask for a contribution of £50 to cover some basic costs. We want to ensure that everyone can do NCS so there are bursaries available if you need some help to cover the cost.


Go to wearencs.com to sign up or for more information Frequently asked questions can be found at wearencs.com/faqs. Alternatively, if you have any questions or don’t think these dates will work with your summer plans, give us a call and we’ll do our best to help you out: 0800 197 8010

We look forward to welcoming you on NCS this summer!
