We are committed to ensuring that as many young people as possible have access to National Citizen Service regardless of background or location. When commissioning providers for 2011 and 2012, we therefore worked to ensure a good geographical spread of National Citizen Service pilots across England. In 2011, Catch 22, Princes Trust, Safe in Tees Valley and v/Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust all offered places on National Citizen Service pilots to young people in the north east. In 2012, there will be a number of opportunities for 16-year-olds in the north east to take part in a National Citizen Service pilot. The organisations providing these places are Academy of Youth, Catch 22, Future Foundations, Safe in Tees Valley and v/Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust who are now actively recruiting in the area.
