NAVCA provides evidence to the Inclusive Growth Commission

NAVCA has responded to the call for evidence by the RSA’s Inclusive Growth Commission. The commission is interested in new models for place-based growth to enable the widest range of people to participate fully in, and benefit from, the growth of their local area. NAVCA’s response reflects the key role local infrastructure organisations play in ensuring people and communities supported by local charities and community groups are part of the answer.

NAVCA’s response calls for radical and creative economic thinking beyond the traditional trickle down and agglomeration economics that have failed many areas. NAVCA’s response says local areas need to be encouraged to have a greater confidence in their own ability to tackle their own priorities and that local charities and community groups should be recognised as playing a major role in building inclusive growth.
