  • Lead the ICS programme. We will ensure that an additional 10,000 UK young people aged 18-25 take part in volunteering in developing countries between 2015-2019. This will inspire a lifetime commitment to active citizenship among young people.
  • Ensure that young people who have already demonstrated their commitment to social action are prioritised for ICS. This will include prioritising young people who have completed National Citizen Service.
  • Work with our partners in ICS to support more than 7,000 UK young people from diverse backgrounds to carry out social action projects in the UK.
  • Promote good practice in line with the six social action principles of #iwill. We will promote this with the consortium of organisations delivering ICS. We will encourage consortium partners to pledge.

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
