Oldham Athletic celebrates young people’s contribution to the town of Oldham thanks to NCS.

Today, Oldham Athletic is championing the impact that young people in Oldham have made thanks to NCS (National Citizen Service). 

During the fixture against Bristol Rovers the club is highlighting the positive impacts young people have made to the community. For the fixture, previous participants of NCS have been invited as special guests to the game, whilst players will be warming up in NCS t-shirts, and have also allocated 500 tickets to partner NCS schools and colleges.

Each year, Oldham Athletic promotes NCS and the impact it has had on young people from Oldham through a campaign called #NCSMatchday. Oldham Athletic Community Trust works with EFL Trust alongside a network of partners to promote and deliver the NCS programme to teenagers.

Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS offers an inclusive summer programme that helps young people get the skills, experience and self-belief they need to achieve their potential - and smash their future goals. NCS aims to make a life-changing difference to young people and how they approach life after school. 

In just a couple of months, they’ll mix with new people from different backgrounds, conquer big challenges, pick up some invaluable life skills and get the confidence they need to live independently. They will even take part in a social action project and ‘do good’ in their local community. It’s the perfect stepping stone into adult life – just ask the 600,000 young people who’ve already experienced NCS.

You can watch highlights from the NCS delivery last year via Oldham Athletic Community Trust's programme via their YouTube channel which you can find by clicking here.

NCS has now opened registration for its summer 2022 programme. To find out more and to sign up, visit wearencs.com.
