Ask us any questions about NCS, run by The Challenge...

What do I need to know if I am the emergency contact?

During the programme we need to be able to get through to the listed emergency contact number at anytime. This could be due to the following reasons:

  • The young person is not feeling well and/or we need advice about medication;
  • The young person has expressed that they want to finish their NCS programme and go home;
  • The Young Person has committed a serious breach of  the NCS code of conduct.

If a young person needs to leave the NCS programme early then their parent or guardian must be available to collect them from where they are located on NCS, including further locations during Phase 1 on the programme.

Please make sure that this is organised and agreed before the start of the programme and please ensure we have the correct emergency number for you so that your young person can have a safe NCS experience. If you need to update the emergency contact number on the application, please contact us.
