Core membership


Full membership, available only to local, place based, sector support and development organisations in England. 

Every full member of NAVCA has exclusive access to a range of benefits tailored specifically for the local, place based, sector support and development organisations of England.

These are our Core members – and we are the only national membership body that solely and uniquely represents them.

Their values, objectives and purpose lie at the heart of everything we do. 

Our top priority is to tell their story; to make their case to policy makers and funders, to gather their views and give them a shared voice where it matters; and to provide support specific to their unique context and challenges. 

Core PLUS membership


All the benefits of Core Membership PLUS additional opportunities, benefits and discounts. 

We know some of our members want to get even more from their membership of NAVCA than they already get from their Core Membership.

So we’re now offering an enhanced membership package – the Core PLUS membership. 



If you care about local social action and want to support the unique role of the local sector support and development organisations across England, why not become a NAVCA Supporter?

You’ll receive our weekly LINX bulletin with a roundup of all the news from around the sector; our monthly Health and Wellbeing Bulletin; priority booking for NAVCA events such as our annual conference; and opportunities to share your news, events and updates with our members.



We are always keen to talk to partner organisations with something unique and relevant to bring to the NAVCA membership. 

If you think this is a conversation you would like to have, please contact Tom Watson, Business and Communications Lead, on 0114 312 2783, or @Tom_NAVCA.
