Welcome to NAVCA's website

On this site you will find information to support local voluntary and community action.

NAVCA believes voluntary and community action offers solutions to the challenges we face. Action rooted in communities brings local people together to campaign, volunteer and provide services. Uniquely, NAVCA is a national membership organisation with a grassroots view. Our membership network of over 350 local support and development charities keeps us in touch with the views of local charities and community groups from across the whole of England.

Members directory Analysis of TLI NAVCA Essentials is a new service designed to help members and help the local community organisations they support.
