Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has welcomed the launch of NCS Connect, a digital resource hub for teenagers.
The National Citizen Service (NCS) has launched the platform to offer a bitesize version of our programme that is free and accessible to all young people.
NCS Connect has been launched partly in response to the difficulties that teenagers have faced during the Coronavirus lockdown, including uncertainty around education and isolation from friends.
NCS Connect will feature content from partners such as NSPCC, who the NCS worked with for last week’s Safer Internet Day as well as Youth Employment UK who will be sharing their top tips for interviews.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“It has been an incredibly difficult time for teenagers, who have seen their education and friendships disrupted.
“I am very glad that the NCS is working to address some of these challenges.
“NCS Connect is a fantastic resource and I would strongly encourage constituents to take a look.”
