Start NCS


A fun & inspiring community programme for 16-17 year-olds

National Citizen Service equips young people with the skills, attitudes and experiences to become responsible citizens, whilst having fun and making new friends.

During half-terms or summer holidays participants have the opportunity to stay away from home and enjoy outdoor activities and skill-building tasks with their new teammates. Next, they test their teamwork by developing a social action project to benefit their community.

Reed in Partnership works with local partners to deliver NCS across the East of England and South West. If you, or someone you know, is eligible for NCS and would like to take up this once in a lifetime opportunity please get in touch:
