We are ICS

We work with the local community to make long-lasting improvements in developing countries across Africa and Asia.

What we do

We offer young people in the UK the chance to change their life - and many others' - forever. With a presence in 10 countries worldwide, we work with local volunteers to support community projects that provide communities with better education, opportunities to earn a decent living, and access to effective health care and services as well as protecting their environment.


Volunteer personal development is a key part of ICS, alongside making a difference overseas, we work to build and develop our volunteers. Volunteers benefit from comprehensive training as part of the programme, they take part in a challenging overseas placement and support work at home. This builds vital transferable skills that contribute towards personal development and finding a job.

Be The Volunteer


ICS is a once in a lifetime opportunity to change your world.

In a recent survey of our volunteers:

• 98% say that the experience has been very useful for their professional development

• 99% say the experience has been very useful for their personal development

• 97% keep in touch with their ICS teammates after placement

• 96% would recommend the programme to others

At ICS we are committed to delivering an inclusive programme and will make reasonable adjustments throughout the journey to ensure that all volunteers have a positive experience of international volunteering.
