NCS: Update and Response to Covid-19

Here at Reds in the Community, we are working hard to keep the ball rolling for NCS this summer, however, due to school closures, staff working from home and new social distancing guidelines, we are having to change the way we keep our summer 2020 sign ups engaged.

If you have booked your place on NCS this summer with Reds in the Community, please follow our in house social media platforms for regular updates and other engagements.

Message from NCS

To our NCS community, 

Firstly, we hope you are keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times. We know that uncertainty can be a difficult place to be so we’ll keep you updated every step of the way. 

Following the recent government announcement, we are continuing to work daily with the government, alongside our network of partners, on our long-term planning. This includes the delivery of this year’s NCS summer programme – and the vital role that NCS can play to help with the nation’s recovery. 

Whilst we are still in discussions and are working on the details, we hope to have clarity next week and will be updating you all as soon as we know more and are able to do so.

What we do know is that we are dedicated to creating a country of connected, confident and caring citizens; One where everyone feels at home and young people have a voice. And even in the toughest of times, we’ll do all we can to fulfil this mission – even if it’s not quite in the way we anticipated. We encourage young people to live by the words ‘No We Can’, and are equally committed to challenging ourselves to do the same.
