NACVS in Olympic Games schemes

Mathew Little

The NACVS is planning to work closely with Sport England in efforts to regenerate communities in the years leading up to the London Olympics.

A Sport England survey shows that 88 per cent of NACVS members already provide services to sports organisations. Funding advice is the most common form of help, but councils for voluntary service also help with governance queries and training questions.

Kevin Curley, chief executive of the NACVS, said: "We think sports groups should be at the heart of local regeneration efforts. Local infrastructure organisations are working closely with Sport England on the development of community sport partnerships in some areas, and NACVS wants this replicated across England."
