Most of our work is carried out by volunteers who help us in our London office, participate in our working groups responsible for implementing our solidarity work or help us raise funds through doing bar work at festivals. You don’t need to live in London to help us as we can communicate by phone, email or conference call. Contact us by email

Get active in Wales NSC or your local twin towns group

Wales NSC and the 13 towns and communities with twinning links in Nicaragua organise regular activities.

Help us with fundraising

If you are into festivals you can work on the bar for us. We are paid for your labour by the Workers' Beer Company (WBC) and you get free entry to festivals such as Glastonbury. Sometimes transport is provided as well. Preference is given to members or supporters of NSC but this is not always essential.

NSC also has places for several high-profile running and cycling events such as the London Marathon & Royal Parks Half Marathon.

Take part in a sponsored marathon or half marathon


Our main source of income is affiliations and donations from our members and supporters.
