  • Release date: 1 March 2016
The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a UK Government-backed initiative that was piloted in Wales in the autumn of 2014.

As part of the process of monitoring the NCS pilot, research into the NCS pilot was commissioned by the Department for Communities and Tackling Poverty, Welsh Government.

The research focussed on collecting the views of key stakeholders in youth work and volunteering in Wales and the views of teachers whose pupils participated in the pilot.

This report provides background information and the Welsh context for the National Citizen Service pilot in Wales (2014), a summary of past and present evaluations of UK NCS and the results and analysis from the internally commissioned research (stakeholders views).
