I am very proud of having led the team that set up National Citizen Service, (NCS) which is funded by Government. This is a wonderful experience for young people aged 15-17, that helps them build their confidence and develop skills that will be very useful for them in life and work. Across the country, more than 275,000 young people have taken part. In Hillingdon, the number has grown to 800 a year from scratch in 2011. It was a huge pleasure to spend some time with the 2017 Hillingdon cohorts and hear their plans for community projects. Congratulations to everyone for stepping up.
