Blackpool FC Community Trust run the National Citizen Service programme which consists of an away residential, a home residential and social action project including both planning and delivery. The Trust have already successfully delivered the NCS project with more lined up for the future.
After the social action part of the project there is a presentation evening at Bloomfield Road where participants can see each other again and are presented with a certificate signed by the Prime Minister to recognise their contribution and efforts.
Once a month there will be an open evening at the stadium for you to come along and learn more about NCS.

“My NCS experience was absolutely awesome. The best bit was meeting new friends and these will be friends for life. I enjoyed all the activities but the canoeing was fantastic. I was initially nervous about going away but I grew in confidence as the course went on. I recommend anyone to get involved in NCS.”
Myles Bony, Blackpool FC Goalkeeper, NCS Ambassador
“NCS is a fantastic programme. I did it myself a few years ago when I was 16 and it’s great. We did numerous activities and it really builds up confidence.”
Joe Stockell, 20, NCS Participant
““After doing the NCS programme, I can honestly say NCS was easily the best experience of my life. Not only did it give me confidence but it made me realise what I wanted to do with my life – which is a career in sport and youth work.”
NCS Youth Board
Our NCS Youth Board is designed to create an opportunity for any Graduates, of any programme, to come back together with the aim of giving back. This will be done through a variety of channels from social action projects within the community to holding fundraisers, being involved with NCS match days as well as being a massive part of the recruitment process and showing other Young people of the local community, what NCS is all about.
