Jack writes to schools about National Citizen Service

Jack has written to local schools in the Filton and Bradley Stoke constituency to encourage them to spread the word about National Citizen Service. Jack recently met Ben Pink from NCS who has told him about the difficulty they are having encouraging some educational providers to spread the word about the scheme.

NCS recruit young people from the age of 15 to take part in four weeks of social action and life skills projects. This involves them spending two weeks away from home initially picking up life skills and getting used to being away from home, and then taking part in a social action project that is set for them by NCS staff, before creating their own social action project.

Young people are recruited to NCS through their schools. Mr Pink told Jack about the difficulties he is experiencing encouraging secondary schools in Jack's constituency to welcome NCS staff into school, and enlisted Jack's help with opening doors to the scheme to enable more young people to hear about the benefits it brings.

'National Citizen Service is a great idea and I want to do everything I can to help young people enjoy the advantages it brings,' commented Jack. I think it is fantastic that they are encouraged to get away from home, learn life skills, gain confidence and take part in social action projects. UCAS encourages applicants to include NCS on their Personal Statements when applying for University. I have also written to Department for Education Ministers to ask how the Government can encourage schools to spread the word.'

More information can be found on the NCS website, http://www.ncsyes.co.uk/ Taking part in NCS costs only £50, and is free for anyone in receipt of free school meals.

Stephen Crabb: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. As one nation Conservatives, we will not be complacent, write people off or walk by on the other side, and that is why we are developing a plan for transforming life chances.

Lord Prior of Brampton: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, for tabling the debate. It is a pity that it is right at the fag end of this sitting because it is a hugely important issue. Whether it is once or twice a year, we ought to be held to account. It is so important. At a time when the health service is going through very difficult financial times, it will be easy to fudge some of the numbers....
