Voice and influence
Everyone has the right to be heard when it comes to making decisions about local services.
Local voluntary action offers a voice to those who are seldom heard. Local infrastructure organisations work for social justice by making sure that local authorities and other public bodies hear those voices. They allow local voluntary groups to raise with public decision makers the issues affecting service users, constituents and members. Many local infrastructure organisations are forced to do this on a shoestring, leaving many people with little or no influence over local services.
We call upon local government and public bodies to fund local infrastructure to support and empower voluntary action so that all communities have a voice that can influence public decision making.
NAVCA commits its members to support and empower all sections of their local community to involve local people in the solution and ensure services address needs.
