Oliver Heald – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Oliver Heald on 2015-11-26.

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what steps the Government is taking to ensure that all young people who wish to participate in the National Citizen Service are able to do so.

Mr Rob Wilson

We are committed to expanding NCS, which is why the Chancellor announced our ambition that 300,000 young people participate in NCS every year by 2019/20 so that they can learn new skills and give back to their communities.

We take great care to ensure that all young people, regardless of background, can take part, providing bursaries and additional support where necessary.
