NAVCA Independent Commission

On 31 March NAVCA launched an independent commission to look at the future of local infrastructure, which until October will examine existing local VCS infrastructure and the challenges and opportunities it is likely to face in the coming years.

The commission will gather evidence from current infrastructure providers, charities and community groups, public sector bodies, the private sector, academics and other interested parties.

A number of evidence-gathering sessions will be held across England and will report back in the Autumn, with the final report launched in December 2014.

Further information about the Commission, including the terms of reference, commission members and research plan are available at
