National Citizen Service


NCS is the country’s fastest-growing youth movement, a rite of passage for all teenagers aged 15-17 to discover who they are and what they can do. It’s your chance to explore, be inspired and find your passion with Reds in the Community. To date, nearly 500,000 young people nationally have taken part. In Barnsley, over 1500 young people have taken part in NCS…will you be next?


We will never ask you for more than a £50 contribution, which will guarantee your spot on either our Summer or Autumn experiences. Everything is then all inclusive, from food to accommodation to transport to the amazing things you’ll be getting up to!

Even better…. Reds in the Community are running a special offer this Summer! If you sign up online NCS will cost only £35!

In 3-4 weeks achieve more than you ever imagined – all for only £35!

Feel the freedom of the outside world during five days away from home, taking on adrenaline-fuelled activities like rock climbing, canoeing and archery. Your team will cheer you along every step of the way, sharing in every challenge, every success. Then you’ll have a few days back at home for some much-needed rest!


DISCOVER (Phase 2) 

Expect transformation, because this week is all about developing YOU. Living independently at the halls of Huddersfield University, you’ll learn essential life skills from local business leaders and charities, gain confidence in public speaking, communications skills and budgeting. It all looks great on your CV, whatever you do next.


ACTION (Phase 3)

Now it’s time to make your mark. Back at home, you and your team will devise a community project based on an issue you feel passionate about. You have the skills and confidence to do anything! This is your chance to feel proud by making a real difference in your community.




Finally, take stock of all you’ve achieved. You’ll have overcome challenges, pushed yourself into new and exciting territories, and had experiences you never thought possible. Celebrate your triumphs with your fellow NCSers at one great event before exploring all the opportunities NCS opens you up to. This is just the beginning! Last year, our graduates enjoyed a Grad Fest with food and live music alongside a series of fun inflatables and festival-themed activities!
