Group backs Navca grant-funding call
Black and minority ethnic umbrella group Voice4Change England has formally endorsed Navca's Sustaining Grants pamphlet, which calls on councils to promote an active local voluntary sector by maintaining grant funding.
Vandna Gohil, director of Voice4Change England said he supported Navca’s view that grants were the most important way of supporting and sustaining voluntary civic action. He said: “BME voluntary and community organisations need to back the Sustaining Grants position and contribute their own case studies in the defence of existing grant funding arrangements.”
In September, a report from the Performance Hub found that a “widespread breakdown in communication” between BME organisations and sector support bodies had resulted in nearly 72 per cent of BME groups making “no meaningful use” of the services available to them.
