Blackpool FC Community Trust run the National Citizen Service programme which consists of an away residential, a home residential and social action project including both planning and delivery. The Trust have already successfully delivered the NCS project with more lined up for the future.
After the social action part of the project there is a presentation evening at Bloomfield Road where participants can see each other again and are presented with a certificate signed by the Prime Minister to recognise their contribution and efforts.
Once a month there will be an open evening at the stadium for you to come along and learn more about NCS.

“My NCS experience was absolutely awesome. The best bit was meeting new friends and these will be friends for life. I enjoyed all the activities but the canoeing was fantastic. I was initially nervous about going away but I grew in confidence as the course went on. I recommend anyone to get involved in NCS.”
Myles Bony, Blackpool FC Goalkeeper, NCS Ambassador
“NCS is a fantastic programme. I did it myself a few years ago when I was 16 and it’s great. We did numerous activities and it really builds up confidence.”
Joe Stockell, 20, NCS Participant
““After doing the NCS programme, I can honestly say NCS was easily the best experience of my life. Not only did it give me confidence but it made me realise what I wanted to do with my life – which is a career in sport and youth work.”
