What does it involve?

Each NCS includes two residential trips where you will take part in adrenaline fuelled activities with your team mates like rock climbing, canoeing, hiking and archery as well as developing skills that you have a passion for. It could be cooking, photography or learning how to set up your own business.

You will also have the chance to put all the skills and experiences you have learnt into practice as a team, agreeing on a social action project that will really make a mark on your local community.

  • Phase 1 – ADVENTURE

    Feel the freedom of the outside world during five days away from home, where you’ll do everything from Raft Building to Kayaking, Rock climbing to Abseiling back down again – we’ve got you covered. With plenty of downtime in the evenings and a common room to keep you occupied (we won’t stop you from bringing your Xbox) you can make new friends and hang out with your current ones. 

  • Phase 2 – DISCOVERY

    Expect transformation, because the next part is all about developing YOU. You’ll learn essential life skills from local business leaders and charities, gain confidence in public speaking, communications skills and budgeting. It all looks great on your CV, whatever you do next. (Of course there’s a few Team Sports and Games Nights for good measure).


    Now it’s time to make your mark. Back at home, you and your team will devise a community project based on an issue you feel passionate about. You have the skills and confidence to do anything – the more original, the better! You’re a Gamer? How about a Game-a-thon for your chosen local charity? Love animals? Go help out at a local animal sanctuary or re-homing shelter. This is your chance to feel proud by making a real difference in your community, and YOU’RE the one that gets to decide how.

  • Phase 4 – CELEBRATION

    You didn’t expect all your hard work and achievements to go uncelebrated, did you? Before we give you your certificates and part ways, we’ll be throwing a big party to show off all of your efforts and ways in which you’ve developed not just yourself, but the community.
