NCS Programme Information

NCS is about…


Don’t miss your chance to do NCS! In one amazing summer, you’ll live away from home, develop skills to boost your CV, and meet amazing people you’ll never forget. So what are you waiting for? Change starts at yes!


First, you’ll spend time away from home enjoying instructor-led outdoor activities. You’ll bond with teammates in an action-packed adventure at an outdoor activity centre tackling activities like rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, and archery.


Closer to home, your group will spend time learning about your local area from businesses and community organisations whilst developing skills and meeting new people.


Having learned all about your local community, you’ll work in your group to plan and pitch for funding for your very own community action project that can make a real difference to where you live. You will then make your mark in your local area, delivering your community action project with your team.


Finally, when you’ve completed your community action project, it’s time to celebrate at a graduation party where you’ll receive a certificate signed by the Prime Minister and get access to unique opportunities to keep volunteering and stay connected to your local area and NCS.

Element Society delivers NCS programmes throughout the year. Programmes vary depending on who you take part with, and at what point in the year, so be sure to check with your provider exactly what you’ll get up to on NCS.

*This programme delivered by Element Society will cost you no more than £50, with financial support available if needed.


NCS only last 4 weeks, with breaks in between, so there’s plenty of time for music festivals and the family holiday. The whole NCS experience cost just £50, including food, activities, and accommodation, with financial assistance available too. Make NCS a part of your summer!
