Nick Hurd, the former minister for civil society, has been appointed to the board of the body that runs the National Citizen Service. 

The NCS Trust said the former Conservative MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, who was the charity minister when the government introduced the NCS programme in 2011, had been appointed for a three-year term. 

Hurd, who stepped down as an MP at the last election after 14 years, was minister for civil society between 2010 and 2014. 

Last year, he was appointed chair of the social investment body Access – The Foundation for Social Investment

The NCS Trust said it had also appointed Deborah Tavana, an executive coach and management consultant, and the educational specialist Jacquie Nnochiri to its board, also for three years. 

Brett Wigdortz, chair of the NCS Trust, said: “Our new members will help to further strengthen our board as we focus our efforts on ensuring that NCS reaches more young people across the country over the coming months."
