Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our customers say:

NCS Programme Manager

Argyle Community Trust

“I want to say a huge thank you for your support across NCS this summer. We have managed to engage over 500 young people in Devon and Cornwall and couldn’t have done it without you. NCS is a journey for young people and you have supported us in guiding our young people through each phase. We are immensely proud of the young people associated to NCS and have been fortunate enough to see some tremendous social action delivered this summer.”
National Citizen Service (NCS)August 2019

Summer Educational Holidays

Mr D. Klein

“We are a large group of families with over 700 people in total, and we have been staying at the Penryn Campus for our two week holiday, every year for more than 10 years. We return each year because of the great customer service we receive from the team at Cornwall Plus. Our requirements are very exacting, and the team cannot do enough to support us.”
Mr D. Klein, Summer Educational Holidays – September 2019

NCS Participant

“It was really fun to go to a university, especially at a young age, where we each got our own room and had to cook meals each night for our flat. The university had the facilities to house us all and for the fun informative talks and events that we had in the day. We also had free time in the evenings to explore the beautiful campus and feel like actual university students”.
Catherine Fitzgerald 2019
