Abdul talks about his experience of Groundwork's NCS programme.
"I heard about Groundwork NCS from a friend at school. For me, the best part was kayaking because I really enjoy water sports. I’m really scared of heights so I can’t believe that I managed to do the climbing! Throughout NCS, I’ve learnt how to face my fears.
I’ve made loads of new friends, which is really great. NCS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do stuff that you don’t get to do every day. It also gives you the chance to be quite independent like making your bed and vacuuming – I never normally do that stuff at home!"
