The Shaw Trust Group
We have been selected by the NCS Trust to bid for the National Citizens Service in the following areas:
- East Midlands
- West Midlands
- York and Humber
We would like to hear from local youth organisations who are interested in working with us and who are able to provide a locally focused service, whose community links, local knowledge and networks would be able to recruit, engage and deliver to young people who would not normally engage with this programme.
You will need to have an understanding of NCS, from recruitment through to social action phases, though not necessarily experience of it, but have the capacity and capability to deliver this on a local basis.
In addition, we are also looking for local youth organisations who might consider delivering specialist activities to parts of the programme, helping support young people through the discovery and social action phases.
If you would like to work with us on the National Citizens Service, please complete the expression of interest form at the link below:
If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
