The Albion Foundation is pleased to be part of the NCS Trust's new network.
The network of NCS providers deliver this unforgettable programme to thousands of young people each year. The charity will be providing the programme with Reed in Partnership in the West Midlands.
Over the last 10 years more than 500,000 young people have benefitted from taking part in NCS. As part of the three or four-week experience during their summer holidays they spend time away trying exciting new activities, learning new skills and making new friends before returning to their communities to develop social action projects.
These projects are a way of raising awareness of local causes, fundraising for charity or carrying out activities to improve local facilities.
The Foundation will be offering the NCS programme to three local schools in Sandwell, delivering to 100 young people over summer 2020, something that excites the charity’s NCS Manager, Anna Pincher.
“We are so excited to be part of NCS for the first time. It’s a great programme for young people to be involved in,” said Anna.
“It teaches them so many skills they can use in the future whilst making new friends and having an enjoyable time, we can’t wait to start recruiting to the programme,” she said.
Michael Lynas, Chief Executive of the NCS Trust, said: "I'm incredibly proud of everything that NCS has achieved in the last ten years. As it moves into the next phase of its life, I'm confident NCS can make a more significant difference for our young people and their communities than ever before."
We are already recruiting for the summer 2020 programme in local schools. You can find out more about NCS and sign up to take part here.
