National Citizen Service

What is NCS?

National Citizen Service (NCS) is an experience you really don’t want to miss. If you’re 15 to 17 years-old, this is your chance to embark on exhilarating challenges, make your mark and build skills for work and life. More than 275,000 young people have already said YES to NCS. Don’t. Miss. Out.

The scheme takes place in the Spring, Summer and Autumn coinciding in and around the school holidays.

What Does it involve?


On phase one, it’s time to challenge yourself!

Living with your team at an outdoor activity centre, you’ll get to know some amazing people and enjoy some quality time away from home.

The best part? You’ll find yourself in a group of 12-15 incredible people you’ve never met before – people who will change your life and whose lives you’ll change.


Now’s your chance to discover something new!

You’ll be reunited with your group in a uni-style environment where you’ll develop life skills like confidence, leadership and communication to boost your CV or UCAS personal statement.

You could find yourself meeting organisations and important people from your local community.


It’s time to make your mark! This is where your NCS experience all comes together. All the fun and inspiration from the first two phases means you’re ready to step up and deliver your very own social action project. Plan; fundraise; make a difference!
