Charities Minister Nick Hurd meets Joe Irvin
Joe Irvin, NAVCA’s new Chief Executive, yesterday met with Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society. Joe took up his post last week and this meeting was an early opportunity for Joe to discuss with the Minister the key issues that NAVCA and the government are working on.
Following the meeting, Joe Irvin said:
“It was a really encouraging meeting, Nick is clearly a minister that both myself and the sector as a whole can work with. We discussed members’ areas of concern and actions we could take to help members. He told me that NAVCA is one of the most important strategic partners.
“Nick has been kind enough to make time to meet me in just my second week in post as NAVCA Chief Executive. I think this shows the high regard that NAVCA is held in, as well as the importance of our relationship with the Office for Civil Society.”
Joe Irvin also met later in the day with Gareth Thomas MP, the Labour Shadow Minister for Civil Society.
