National Citizen Service (NCS)

NCS provides the buzz of being an adult without the responsibility of being an adult.

Entrust has worked with NCS since 2010, providing a variety of outdoor activities at our centres and pop-up sites across England and Wales during the Be Epic phase of NCS.

In 2019, we began directly delivering NCS across Staffordshire and parts of Shropshire and have supported hundreds of young people through our programmes.

“Before NCS I had nearly no confidence at all, and now NCS has gave me that little boost of confidence to do more. It was a great way to make friends and enjoy yourself as well. One of the best experiences I have ever had.” 

- Emily, NCS graduate

From 2023, Entrust will offer a new NCS residential experience which will consist of a five day stay away from home where young people will take part in activities that centre around independent living. With a mix of fun, adventurous activities and skills for life, young people will have the opportunity to make new friends from many different locations and backgrounds. 

What is NCS?




Designed for 16 to17-year-olds, NCS is a youth programme that runs every summer and autumn, during school holidays.

NCS gives teenagers a crash course in life skills that inspires them to feel independent. They’ll meet new people, stay away from home, take on adventures and challenges, and get their entrepreneurial hats on to learn new life skills.
