NCS Say 'Yes'

The Challenge: From keeping teenagers productive and occupied, to affording family activities and summer holidays, time outside of school can be a worry for parents who may be unsure of how their teenagers are spending their days. The challenge was to create awareness and drive consideration of NCS amongst the parents of 15-17 year olds.

The Solution

NCS partnered with The Sun to create a multi-platform execution showing parents that they have the power, thanks to NCS, to change their teenagers’ lives for the better. Sun Online hosted a bespoke interactive shutter site including video and quiz while press showcased a series of advertorials and display targeting parents.
