Who can come along?
To take part in our autumn NCS programme you must be aged 16 or 17 on 31st August 2022. You’ll be in a team of up to 16 other young people from your local area. You might recognise the odd face from your school or college, or you might be meeting everyone for the first time. That’s the beauty of it – lots of new mates await at NCS!

How much does it cost?

The autumn 2022 NCS programme costs £50. This includes the residential stay (watch this space for more details about that). 

What about Covid?

We’re following the government and the National Youth Agency’s guidance on managing youth sector activities and spaces during Covid-19. That means you'll be in venues that have been selected and checked following rigorous guidelines and specifications to ensure the safest environment possible.

When you're in a group, it will have no more than 16 people in it, plus the staff looking after you. All staff will have been trained to deliver high-quality, safe experiences... and are there to make sure you're having lots of fun too!

There will also be signs up in all buildings and supervision to make sure you're able to move around safely. All activities you take part in will have been designed with Covid-19 considerations in place - requirements on social distancing, PPE and how many people can be involved.
