National Citizen Service


National Citizen Service (NCS) offers 16 and 17 year olds in Salford and Trafford an opportunity to participate in a personal development programme. The participants will engage in a pre-programme of team building activities, followed by residential experiences that will provide the skills and knowledge necessary for their task of creating and delivering a social action project that will benefit the community. The main summer programme each year is now complemented by shorter versions in the autumn and spring, alongside ongoing volunteering and social action opportunities through the Graduate Programme.

Salford Foundation is delivering the NCS programme in Salford and Trafford as part of a Greater Manchester consortium with our partners The Challenge Network and Bolton Lads and Girls Club.
