Thousands to join national youth programme

From 2020, Bristol City Robins Foundation will engage thousands of young people aged 16 and 17, delivering National Citizen Service (NCS).

NCS is one of the fastest growing youth programmes engaging 500,000 young people since piloting in 2009.

The NCS experience will give young people a clearer idea of what they want from their future. They will take on fresh challenges, get a taste of independence and be given a platform to have their voices heard and deliver a social action project that will positively impact their local area.

Through EFL Trust, over 1.8 million hours of voluntary work has been delivered addressing local and national issues which young people are passionate about such as mental health, the environment and plastic waste.

In partnership with EFL Trust, Bristol City Robins Foundation won the contract to deliver NCS from 2020 onwards joining 65 delivery partners that will be managed by EFL Trust.

Carly Price, NCS coordinator at the Robins Foundation commented, “We are really excited to extend this opportunity to young people in our network.

“Our extensive knowledge gained from working with young adults on our various projects at the Robins Foundation, gives us the confidence that our NCS programme will be like no other.

“We have been involved with NCS for a number of years and we are now buzzing to have the opportunity to put our own stamp on the programme and create an unforgettable experience which will enhance young people’s lives.”

Mike Evans, Director of Operations, EFL Trust, is delighted with the amount of Football Clubs involved in NCS going forward saying;

“The EFL Trust’s vision is to create a stronger, healthier more active communities and we see the delivery of NCS as a significant part of achieving this.

We are delighted to be able to grow our supply chain of Club Community Organisations and youth organsations involved in NCS and are proud of the impact we have had through NCS so far. Supporting thousands of young people as they transition into adulthood and then in turn make a positive difference in their community is something to be immensely proud of, and we look forward to continuing that in the future.”

Chief Executive of NCS Trust, Michael Lynas 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.”
