  • Please send cheques to PO BoX 316, Ely, CB7 9FS
  • Bursaries

    Bursaries can be accessed in some cases to cover the cost of the contribution and the costs of accessing the programme e.g. if your child requires appropriate clothing to take part in outdoor activities. In particular, we will consider bursary applications from participants who are teen parents, not living with their parents, have caring responsibilities or those who do not have a parent/guardian who works.
  • No refund policy

    No refunds are available for cancellations or non-attendance, unless under exceptional circumstances.
  • Publicity and Media Statement

    Throughout NCS participants take part in activities that support their personal development and promote community engagement. Occasionally staff, media and young people themselves record these activities using photographs or video. This content may be used to promote or champion the good work of NCS and its participants via newspapers, websites, social networks or other suitable promotional media. By taking part in NCS and not informing us otherwise, we assume both NCS participants and their parents/guardians accept that their image, video and comments may be used in public print, web use, display or broadcast. Any photos or videos used will be positive, and we are happy to share with you any media published. All images and footage is kept securely and will not be used for any other purposes than those stated above.

  • Attendance Policy

    NCS has a limited amount of places. Each NCS place receives funding of over £1000 from the government. If young people give up their place close to the start of programme the place can be very difficult to re-fill, meaning wasted government funds and wasted opportunities for young people. Please help us by agreeing to the pledge below:

    I will do everything I can to ensure I am able to fully complete my NCS Programme. If I cannot take part I will let my NCS provider know at least one month in advance.
