National Association of Voluntary & Community Action (NAVCA) is the national charity for local infrastructure organisations. Our members work with people setting up and running charities and community groups across England. Through our members, our network reaches over 160,000 local organisations – the biggest network in England. We are a campaigning movement committed to collaboration, social justice and diversity.
Too often policy is decided by the powerful by listening to the powerful. We use information and intelligence from our members to inform and lobby government and funders so policy and funding supports local charities and community groups.
We also work with members to help them improve the services they provide. We do this by sharing good practice, providing information and helping members to network.
