National Citizen Service (NCS) is one of the Coalition Government's flagship initiatives for building a bigger, stronger society. The programme aims to be a rite of passage for all 16 year olds and help to promote a more cohesive, responsible and active society. It is a summer programme involving residential and at-home components in which young people come together as a team to design and carry out a social action project in their local area.
NCS had three broad aims at the outset of the programme: to make society more cohesive, more responsible and more engaged. The evaluation has identified impacts on young people in relation to four outcomes that contribute to these three core aims.
