How it works
Your ICS placement is about more than what you do while you're overseas.
Before leaving you need to fundraise a minimum of £800 that goes towards funding the programme. When you return you'll do your Action at Home, a project that makes a positive change in your local community.
We're here to help, from tips on how to fundraise, to training to support your projects overseas, to what might make a good Action at Home.
As an ICS volunteer you'll be supported every step of the way.
Part of that support includes us paying for the things you need to do before you go overseas, like travel and accommodation for assessment days and training.
As a matter of principle no volunteer will be excluded from accessing the programme due to cost.
ICS is committed to inclusion and to meeting the individual needs of those who take part. We welcome applications from young people who have an impairment or who consider themselves to be disabled.
