National Citizen Service

If you're aged between 15 and 17 you can take part in a range of adventures, meet new people and boost your CV with the National Citizen Service (NCS) this summer or autumn.

The NCS lasts for four weeks in the summer and just a few days in the autumn and runs in four stages.


You can enjoy the challenge of 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 working in a group of 12 to 15 people you’ve never met before.


Sticking with your group, you'll get the chance to try something new in a university style environment where you’ll build your communication, confidence and life skills to boost your CV.

Make your mark

This is where you get to use your NCS experience and create your own social action project. It'll involve you planning, fundraising and making a difference to your community.


It's time to celebrate in style for all your hard work. At the end of your NCS experience you'll graduate and become part of the bigger NCS family.

You'll get exclusive access to volunteer opportunities and apprenticeships as well as amazing discounts and big events.

How to apply

You can sign up for just £50 (bursaries are available in some cases) or call the NCS team on 0121 386 6910.
