S4L is part of NCS 2.0

Sport 4 Life UK is pleased to be part of the NCS Trust’s new network.

The network of NCS providers deliver this unforgettable programme to thousands of young people each year. Sport 4 Life UK will be providing the programme with Reed in Partnership in the West Midlands.

Over the last 10 years more than 500,000 young people have benefitted from taking part in NCS. As part of the 3 or 4 week experience during their summer holidays, they spend time away trying exciting new activities, learning new skills and making new friends before returning to their communities to develop social action projects. These projects are a way of raising awareness of local causes, fundraising for charity or carry out activities to improve local facilities.

Matthew Forsyth, Head of Operations and Contracts of Sport 4 Life UK said:

We are extremely proud and delighted to be a Delivery Partner with Reed in Partnership on the NCS programme, in which we will have an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of over 400 young people each year. The NCS vision and mission aligns seamlessly with Sport 4 Life’s, and will complement our existing services, enabling us to have greater impact with young people we engage.

Michael Lynas, Chief Executive of the NCS Trust, 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.”

The new NCS network has been developed to deliver better value and experience for young people, parents and guardians and schools.

We are already recruiting for the Summer 2020 programme in local schools. You can find out more about NCS and sign up to take part at
