Labour MP, Steve Rotheram is calling on his young constituents to make this summer one of change, personal development and social action by taking part in The Catch22 NCS Partnership.

The Catch22 NCS partnership will give 16 year olds from different backgrounds across Liverpool the chance to make a difference in their communities.

Young people will be offered a wide range of opportunities and innovative experiences from sport, drama, media, outdoor education and involvement in environmental projects. One thing is certain; the young people taking part will have a summer to remember.

Speaking about the scheme, Stve explained, “This is a great opportunity for young people to show the valuable contribution they can make to Walton. It’s an exciting, challenging and safe way for 16 year olds to spend some of their summer. Another important aspect of NCS is that it could develop the qualities valued by employers and educational institutions.”

He continued, “Catch22 NCS Partnership is one of twelve pilot providers of NCS. There will be two residential phases, a team building week of outdoor adventures and a local community week which will see the young people planning their own social action project. The young people themselves will help shape this phase and use it to make a lasting contribution to where they live.”

For your chance to mix it up this summer, meet new people and make a difference, get involved in NCS.  For more information visit www.catch-22.org.uk/ncs.
