The Sheffield United Community Foundation are an established provider of the National Citizen Service programme.
NCS is a flagship policy at the heart of the Government's vision for building a big society. NCS brings together 16-17-year olds from different backgrounds in a programme of challenge, service and learning.
It is a chance for teens to shake things up and develop new skills for whatever post-GCSE life has to throw at them.
The Blades currently have spaces on our final two trips of the Summer, please call/text 07804 282117 or email NCS@sufc-community.co.uk for more information.
