Our vision and mission

NAVCA strategy wordcloud
Our vision
is that everyone is able to fulfil their potential and shape their environment through social action.

Our mission is to strengthen and champion social action through local infrastructure.

We are at the centre of a movement for social change. A campaigning movement committed to collaboration, social justice and diversity; one that springs from the energy and resources of communities across England. Our members convene and broker social action. They bring people together in solidarity and mutual support, stimulating new initiatives and enabling voluntary and community organisations to be more resilient and resourceful in response to local needs. Members are locally accountable to the people and communities they serve, offering them a voice to shape and control local services.
