This is probably one of the biggest worries people have before coming on NCS. Staying away from home is definitely a challenge for many people. However, part of the programme is about challenging yourself.
In the future, you may leave home for university or for work and it’s important that you have the right skills to do this. Staying away from home for a few nights on NCS will allow you to practice this skill in a safe environment with staff who will be on hand should anything worry you.
