NCS is providing 16-year-olds across England with the opportunity to take part in challenging outdoor activities and to give something back to their communities. I have visited a number of the pilot programmes this summer and the feedback I have heard from the young people taking part has been overwhelmingly positive.

An independent evaluation of the NCS pilots is currently taking place and I will be able to update the House on the outcomes of that evaluation once it has concluded.
