We are a team of young people from East Sussex currently on an NCS program. The purpose of NCS is to get the young people from a wide range of backgrounds working together to plan and put together a social action project within their local community area. NCS aims to help young people aged 16 and 17 (whether at school, college, work or unemployed) gain new skills, challenge themselves, gain confidence and improve their C.V all whilst doing something positive in their community!

We have chosen to raise awareness and funds for the local branch of "abandofbrothers" in Eastbourne. "abandofbrothers" (ABOB) work with young men involved in the criminal justice system, providing them with the support they need to make the transition to an adulthood free of crime, and full of connection, purpose and meaning. The focus of the charity is to link adult male role models to these young men, to help with providing them with experiences that challenge them and support their growth, and providing them with a lasting community that supports them.

After speaking with the charity our team chose to work along side abandofbrothers. The support the charity provides touched all of our hearts. Our plan is to raise money and awareness for this charity. We are going to have a cake sale, quiz night and a sleepout. This is going to raise the money that the charity needs to carry on helping with the young men who need supporting and donations or support would mean alot to our team and abandofbrothers.
