Players showed their support for the National Citizens Service (NCS) at the weekend as they wore branded shirts ahead of their fixture against Accrington Stanley, to raise awareness of the Community Trust’s project delivery.

National Citizens Service (NCS) is a four-phase programme split over to weeks, for young people aged 15-17 years old.

The first week of the programme will be spent in either Colomendy, North Wales, or Haworth dependent on the programme dates selected. The participants will take part in all sorts of outdoor activities such as Mountain Climbing, Abseiling, Kayaking, and much more.

Activities will be planned for the evening, which aims to both mentally and physically challenge the participants whilst developing team-building skills and confidence. It’s a week that will not be forgotten!

The second week will be based closer to home and looks at supporting the local community, finding an area that they are passionate about positively affecting through raising awareness or raising valuable funds towards a specific charity.

Developing skills is the aim, to enhance their adult living post-compulsory education, for example, students will get a taste of cooking, CV writing, business planning, and entertainment – who doesn’t like to laugh!

Previous graduates have supported charities that provide care towards mental health and those that are isolated or homeless, raising over a total of £4000 over the past three years.

NCS is a nationally recognized initiative that empowers young people to better themselves in an inclusive environment and to finalise the experience of a lifetime. Each person who completes the full programme will receive a certificate signed by the Prime Minister.

The start dates are Monday 27 June and Monday 1 August 2022. If you would like to sign up today, you can contact our NCS on or sign you can sign up online at
