Bain to lead 20-strong board assessing ChangeUp

Tania Mason

Cafod director Chris Bain has been appointed to chair the group that will advise Capacity Builders on whether ChangeUp is meeting the sector's infrastructure needs.

The Infrastructure National Partnership (INP) was proposed as part of the ChangeUp framework, published in June 2004.

Twenty people are now being sought for the INP board. According to the recruitment ad, the group will comprise members from national, regional, local and community voluntary sector infrastructure bodies, who can provide expert advice and combine "organisational experience with an understanding of the impact ChangeUp will make".

The Home Office has provided £85,000 for the INP, mainly to cover members' expenses.

The job of the INP, which has its secretariat at the NCVO, is stated in the job advertisement as assessing the ChangeUp initiative and ensuring it meets the sector's needs.

Although the six national hubs are formally part of ChangeUp, a Home Office spokesman said the INP would not be assessing their performance.
