Government announces organisations to deliver National Citizen Service

17 September 2012

The National Citizen Service offers 16 and 17 year olds from different backgrounds valuable life experience by putting them into teams away from home and setting them the task of finding solutions to local problems and issues that matter to them.

In future, the NCS will be structured differently. A lead organisation will be responsible for the programme in each of the 19 regions across England. Each regional lead will then have a wide range of partner organisations to run the programme in that area. These agreements will be for two years, 2013 and 2014.

The lead organisations are (those delivering in the North West are highlighted): 

  • Football League Trust
  • Inspira (formerly Connexions Cumbria)
  • Lincolnshire & Rutland Education Business Partnership
  • New College Nottingham 
  • Petroc (Devon)
  • The Challenge Network
  • The NCS Network
  • Reed in Partnership

The NCS Network, which includes Serco and the youth charities Catch 22, the National Youth Agency, vinspired and UK Youth, has been awarded six of the 19 regional contracts available, the largest number for any organisation.

The government received 57 bids for the 19 regional contracts. 73 charities and VCS organisations will be involved with delivering NCS locally.
