We are NAVCA, the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action.
We are the national membership body specifically for local infrastructure organisations in England. Find out more about what we do.
We bring our members together to lead, inspire and build confidence across the movement. We host events, including our Annual Conference, to share knowledge and facilitate peer support.
We share information about emerging and important issues facing our members. We publish research and briefings on key topics and policies, and send a fortnightly members' newsletter.
We share support and best practice on a range of topics, and provide training or resources. We also offer the LIQA (Local Infrastructure Quality Accreditation) and VCQA (Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation), which allow organisations to demonstrate that they provide high-quality support for the local voluntary and community sector.
We promote the impact and value of local infrastructure on a national level, and we use member intelligence and knowledge to influence policy and practice. We also lead partnerships to deliver national projects, such as the VCS Emergencies Partnership and the Vision for Volunteering.
