Our vision is clear — ‘a country of connected, confident and caring citizens where everyone is able to grow into the best version of themselves’. We believe that strong relationships with partners and suppliers play a critical part in helping us realise it.
We offer organisations the opportunity to help address three significant social challenges, which are particularly important now as we begin to emerge from the shadow of COVID: social cohesion, civic engagement and social mobility.
Since NCS began, over 700,000 young people have benefited from the experience, supported by the Trust and its partners. Organisations working with us have a unique opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of young people and their communities.
We are looking for organisations with the passion, purpose and expertise to work with us to make our vision a reality and help our country’s young people to become ‘world-ready and work-ready’.
Please register on our Supplier Portal to hear all the latest news about opportunities to work with NCS, including forthcoming tenders for delivery from 2023.
From 2023, NCS will be awarding grants to local organisations delivering community-based experiences at a grassroots level, for the first time.
Supported by the National Youth Agency and Street Games, the grants will reflect our commitment to providing young people with the skills to live independently, progress into employment and bring about positive social change in their communities.

We’re looking for partners to provide digital experiences for young people, presented in a range of different online formats; from content they can consume at their own pace, to live sessions on interesting topics with opportunities to hear from experts. Each activity will support young people in gaining new skills and align with the NCS outcomes. This is an opportunity to provide innovative experiences which will support a generation of young people to seize opportunities, face the future with confidence and be more actively engaged in civic life.
Delivering digital experiences will be a two-stage process through a DPS (Dynamic Purchasing System). Initially, prospective suppliers will be asked to complete a Supplier Selection Questionnaire (SSQ), plus some additional supporting documentation. If suppliers are successful, they will be invited to tender for Call-Off contracts to deliver digital experiences.
If you would like to find out more about joining the DPS for the delivery of our digital experiences, please contact email@example.com
