NCS volunteers need projects and communities to support in Moulton!

The EBP are proud to be delivering the national youth programme National Citizen Service (NCS) in your area this autumn. This means we can help you with your community projects and local needs.

- If you've got a decoration or renovation project young volunteers could get stuck into

- If you've got an outdoor space young people could get creative with

- If your community has an objective or issue young minds could assist with

- If your organisation needs support to raise awareness or rally support

- If you've got none of these but you do have a room or venue a team of volunteers could work from to plan and deliver their own community project

then we could assign you a team of inspirational NCS students this October. And it won't cost you a penny.

NCS is a government-backed youth development scheme that helps 16-17 year olds develop valuable skills for work and life and improve their sense of social responsibility. Young people taking part in the programme spend time living away from home building their confidence, independence and teamwork skills before spending four days back in their local area delivering a project that will benefit their community - we call this 'social action'.

Social action can be a huge variety of things ranging from physical hands-on projects to more awareness and campaign based ventures. You can either present an opportunity for volunteers to support or you can allow them the chance to come up with one themselves. The only thing we need from a potential social action host is a room or venue where the young people can shelter, plan their work and access toilet facilities.

Social action teams are all staffed, with trained, DBS checked adult mentors, so you would not be required to supervise the volunteers yourself. The students would work on your project or from your venue over 4 days between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm (flexible). These days would be:

- Thursday 25th October

- Friday 26th October

- Saturday 27th October

- Saturday 3rd November

If you would like to learn more or submit an opportunity for a social action team this autumn please contact Cheryl Barrows on 01522 574133 or . The deadline for projects to be submitted is Friday 28th September and teams are allocated to projects on a first come first served basis so please do not delay in getting in touch!

Many thanks again for your support in getting this message out there Jane. Hope to hear from any interested parties soon.

Kind regards,

Cheryl Barrows
