From 2020 onwards, we’re pleased to say we’ll be working with over 150 incredible partner organisations. Local football clubs, charities and councils form our network and come together to deliver the best possible NCS experience for young people across England and Northern Ireland.
Our new delivery network will be led by five Management Partners. NCS Trust will manage delivery in three regions. While Reed, Ingeus, EFL and The Growth Company will look after the other six regions – here’s a bit more about them:
Reed is our Management Partner for East Anglia and West Midlands. They’re passionate about providing public services that change people’s lives for the better. Reed have worked with us since 2014, delivering life-changing programmes that positively transform young people and their communities.
With us since 2014, Ingeus has a firm belief that young people’s lives should be filled with diverse opportunities and that they should have character-building experiences to help them to realise their potential and fulfil their ambitions. We couldn’t agree more. Ingeus will now be responsible for managing the delivery of NCS in both the East Midlands and South East.
The EFL Trust is the charitable arm of the English Football League (EFL). Their vision is: ‘Stronger, healthier, more active communities,’ and they deliver on this with initiatives that focus on raising people’s aspirations and building stronger, more cohesive communities. From 2020, they will be overseeing the NCS programme for Yorkshire and Humberside.
The Growth Company is an award-winning, not-for-profit social enterprise with a mission to enable growth, create jobs and improve lives. Driven by their successes, they aim to leave a lasting legacy of growth by focusing on positive change and tangible outcomes. New to our network, we can’t wait to see what they achieve in the North West.
By now, you should probably know what we’re all about… But in case you don’t, we’re the Management Partner for London, the North East and the South West. Since our pilot programme in 2009, we have given over 500,000 young people the NCS experience, and from 2020 we look forward to being able to have an even bigger impact by becoming a Direct Delivery Partner.
