Navca confirms it will make half its workforce redundant
Local umbrella body is making the cuts after losing 50 per cent of its income
The charity has concluded a consultation that began in September and will shed 19 of its 38 posts.
Staff were told just before Christmas about the new structure, which will come into effect on 1 April.
The restructure was prompted by funding cuts, with the charity’s support from Capacitybuilders and the Big Lottery Fund coming to an end.
Kevin Curley, chief executive of Navca, said he expected the organisation’s income in 2011/12 to be £1.5m - down from £3m this year.
Curley told Third Sector that although the scale of the organisation’s activities would be cut back, it retained strong policy and membership services teams and would continue to represent the local voluntary sector to government and provide local voluntary action with a range of support services.
