Our members are part of a network of local infrastructure organisations, working across England to provide a range of support and services within their communities.

Being a NAVCA member means being part of a movement for positive change. When we work together, we can advocate more effectively for our local communities and the voluntary sector.

It also means being able to access the different types of support and opportunities through NAVCA.

Member Feedback

''The conference really gave me a deep dive into the complexities of the work, and how vast the network is. I am looking forward to working with other people, and applying learnings from all the workshops into my role.''

''We all appreciate the new vision and energy that you bring, as well as the access to vital resources that we are struggling to get elsewhere.''

''The role NAVCA plays is a pivotal one, to ensure we have the best local infrastructure support available – a challenge during these recent times.''
