About our members

NAVCA is a membership body for local support and development organisations. Our members exist to champion and strengthen local charities, voluntary organisations and community groups. They:

  • provide specialist expertise, information and support and develop the skills local people need to run successful organisations and groups
  • spread good practice, prevent duplication of effort and support joint working
  • help groups find funding and make effective use of resources
  • promote equality and diversity by fostering a wider understanding of the needs of disadvantaged and under-represented groups
  • make sure policy makers understand the needs of local voluntary organisations and community groups
  • help public bodies engage effectively with local voluntary organisations and community groups
  • provide a forum for local voluntary organisations and community groups
  • encourage more people to volunteer and get involved in voluntary and community action.
