An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until 30th August 2019
NCS Summer 2019 is split into three phases. View the NCS Summer Timetable for each phase here
Phase 1: Outdoor Residential
A 4 night, 5- day residential (Monday to Friday) at Open Doors in St Asaph, North Wales where you will get the opportunity to take part in cool activities including; rock climbing, camping, bush-craft, archery and much more, hang out with new friends and build long-lasting relationships (and maybe sing Oasis classics in unison round the massive campfire!). Young people will develop leadership, communication, confidence and team-work skills. Teams are made up of up to 16 young people from across all of Warrington.
Phase 2: University Residential
After a weekend back at home, you get the opportunity to discover university life, staying Monday to Friday for 4 nights at Chester University (Warrington Campus). You get your own room in the Halls of Residence so you can embrace independence and truly live the ‘Uni’ experience! During the week you get the chance to learn many life skills to take you forward as you develop professionally and personally with workshops on mental health awareness, disability awareness, well-being and first aid, to cooking classes and even managing a budget to buy food for the week. The teams get to visit local businesses that support Onside Warrington Youth Club including; Vimto, Faithful & Gould and Gullivers World
Phase 3: Social Action
On this phase you will plan and deliver a Social Action project that will make a difference to someone or something within the local community. Week 1 you will be planning for your project and in Week 2 you will be delivering it. Previous NCS groups have raised awareness on mental health, collected donations for homeless people, ran activity days at a care home. The project can be whatever you feel passionate about and work together to do the best as a team. These two weeks typically the house are 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday but is subject to change based on the group and the hours required to complete their project. You will be based at a central Warrington location.
