The final participation and completion figures for the National Citizen Service programme in 2018 are undergoing compliance checks and will be published on gov.uk once they are finalised.

Government targets have been agreed annually between the sponsoring Government Department and the NCS Trust in line with NCS Trust projections of demand. The table attached shows annual targets and participation ceilings.

A maximum participation ceiling was allocated to NCS in the 2015 Spending Review to ensure that no young people were turned away from the programme. This was not a participation target. The ceiling was revised downwards in the 2017 revised Spending Review settlement.
