Ursula's NCS Story

Groundwork's NCS participant Ursula talks about her experience on the Autumn programme.

"I found out about NCS because my friend at school had already done it in Summer and said it was amazing. My favourite part about NCS has been discovering that I can push myself more than I knew. I never, ever thought I'd be able to abseil but with the encouragement of my team and the staff, I managed to do it and actually really enjoyed it!

I've made lots of new friends and I've also got to know some acquaintances much better. NCS really does boost your confidence and the social action part of the programme is a great opportunity to develop skills for jobs".
