Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation play a big part in EFL Trust’s NCS outstanding contract delivery over the Autumn season.
In the first time since the network launched, the EFL Trust, partnered with NCS, have achieved 100 percent of contract delivery in every region, during what has been a very difficult year.
The Trust have thought to have delivered 4890 NCS Autumn activities, which equates to 117 percent of their total contracted numbers.
Simultaneously, it is thought that 122 school joined in with the partnership, working with over 10,000 students, which equates to £300,000.
Statistics show that the delivery of the programme was very strong across our region, with Yorkshire completing 100 percent of the contracted delivery during the season.
These sorts of figures offer a glimmer of hope in what has been a difficult year and shows that, during a national pandemic, NCS is the root of normality for a lot of children.
The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation’s NCS Manager, Kate Hansell, is delighted by the news and is thrilled about the role the Foundation played in the Autumn season’s project.
“It’s great news to hear that our combined efforts as NCS delivery partners had resulted in 100% of contracted delivery in Yorkshire Humber,” Kate explained.
“Wakefield Trinity contributed to this figure by supporting 62 young people’s participation on the NCS programme this Autumn.
“Our work has also impacted and given back to the local community, working with Appletree Allotment, Homestart UK and GamCare to get the young people ‘doing good’ and encouraging young people to engage more with issues in their local community.”
As a Foundation, we hope to do things even bigger and better next year – ensuring all young people in Wakefield get the true NCS experience; connecting with new people, engaging with their local community, building skills and empowering them as they transition through this challenging period.
The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation has recently been awarded their contract for Summer 2021 and cannot wait to get started.
