NACVS smooths over differences

The NACVS and Volunteering England have moved to defuse a long-running controversy about whether local volunteer centres should be independent charities.

In a joint statement, the umbrella bodies said there was "no single best option" for the organisation of local generic and volunteering infrastructure.

Kevin Curley, chief executive at NACVS, said that, for many years, conflict had rumbled on over whether volunteer centres should be part of local CVSs or independent organisations.

"Too many people in both our organisations have simply expressed personal views and turned those into national policy," said Curley.

"But neither organisation has a preferred structure in mind. We're only concerned with what works best."
