Thank you for your interest in ICS. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be running Summer 2020 programmes. Please read the full COVID-19 statement.
In regard to future placement dates, the UK government is currently redesigning ICS. We fully expect ICS to continue; the redesign is to ensure the programme continues to provide the best offer for young volunteers, the communities they serve, and the best value for the British taxpayer.
Whilst the redesign is ongoing, the exact timing of future placements is unconfirmed. If you would like to be considered for future placements, the ICS website is open for applications and we will be contacting applicants with further information as this becomes available.
In the meantime sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date on opportunities for wider engagement with the ICS Programme and youth-led action for International Development.

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy
ICS is led by VSO and funded by the UK Government.
VSO has zero tolerance of abuse and exploitation of vulnerable people. We expect all our employees/volunteers to ensure we protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm and abide by our safeguarding policy (PDF).
