Ah - interesting. I hadn't heard of this but possibly because it doesn't cover my area (seems to be for London, Surrey, Manchester, Lancashire and the West Midlands only). But I did click on the link for the National Citizen Service www.ncsyes.co.uk and registered with them - maybe there are providers offering similar activities in my area (West Sussex)
I am looking for activities that my son can do once his GCSEs have finished - which is a lot earlier than I was expecting (end of May rather than end of June!). I am prepared to pay for him to do a week's activity holiday or something like that (my daughter did something similar that was arranged by her school and I do try to be fair!) but I can't find any that run in June - all the companies that I have looked at stop their holidays after half term and don't start again until around 20th July.
Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
