Blog Diversity is a core principle for NCS, and it's not just us who believe it! Have you heard about NCS? We are incredibly excited about it! National Citizen Service (NCS) is a summer programme open to anyone aged 16 and 17, who wants to do something fantastic with their summer holidays. Every year an immensely diverse group of young people sign up for the programme, - diversity, equality and inclusion are core principles of the programme. We work hard in Cumbria & Lancashire to ensure anyone who wants to do NCS is able to. By working with young people, parents and guardians and other people connected to that person we ensure they have a great summer and make the most of the NCS experience. Don't take our word for it, check out this blog from The Coffee Lady http://thecoffeelady.blogspot.com A youth programme like no other On NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together.
