Reds in the Community celebrates young people’s contribution to Barnsley thanks to NCS

Today, Reds in the Community and Barnsley FC is celebrating the impact that young people in Barnsley have made thanks to NCS (National Citizen Service). 

During the fixture against Bristol City the club is highlighting the positive impacts young people have made to the community. Previous participants of NCS have been invited as special guests to the game, players will be warming up in NCS t-shirts and the NCS team will be outside the Ozone with giveaways!

Each year, Barnsley FC promotes NCS and the impact it has had on young people from Barnsley through a campaign called #NCSMatchday. Reds in the Community works with EFL Trust alongside a network of partners to promote and deliver the NCS programme to teenagers.

Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS offers an inclusive summer programme that helps young people get the skills, experience and self-belief they need to achieve their potential – and smash their future goals. NCS aims to make a life-changing difference to young people and how they approach life after school. 

In just a couple of weeks, they’ll mix with new people from different backgrounds, conquer big challenges, pick up some invaluable life skills and get the confidence they need to live independently. They will even take part in a social action project and ‘do good’ in their local community. It’s the perfect stepping stone into adult life – just ask the 600,000 young people who’ve already experienced NCS.

Reds in the Community has delivered NCS for over 10 years with over 1000 young people take part in the programme. NCS has opened registration for its summer 2022 programme. To find out more and to sign up, visit
