Excellence, Everywhere: NAVCA's strategy, 2020-25

NAVCA's mission is to strengthen and champion social action through effective local voluntary and community sector infrastructure. 

We believe every community in England benefits from a thriving local voluntary sector, strengthened through excellent local support and development. We want to make sure that anyone in England who wants to volunteer (or start a charity or social enterprise, or create a voluntary organisation) has a place to go for good, local, advice and support. We will continue to speak for and with our members, providing a clear voice, effective influence and engaged support amongst key stakeholders, locally and nationally.

Our objectives for 2020-25 are:

  • To assure the quality of local sector support and development, as delivered by every member of NAVCA. 
  • To make the case for local infrastructure and fill the gaps in the provision of local VCS sector support and development provision at national level.
  • To lead by example, speaking with credibility and influence as the voice of local sector support and development, providing the best possible support for our members, by being the best national infrastructure body we can be.
