Job description

Catch22 exists to help build a society where everyone has a good place to live, good people around them, and a fulfilling purpose. We call these our '3Ps'.

The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a flagship policy at the heart of the coalition government’s vision for building a Big Society.  The programme brings together 16-17 year olds from different backgrounds in a summer programme which includes adventure, discovery and meaningful social action.  NCS aims to support participants’ personal and social development and help them develop the confidence, skills and attitudes they need to take on active roles in their communities and develop themselves for their own future.
