Navca holds session on how to live with the Tories

Navca is looking at how it can improve its relationship with the Conservative Party at the umbrella body's annual conference, which starts next week.

Kevin Curley, chief executive of Navca, will chair a session on how the organisation can develop its relationship with the Tories, who are riding high in the opinion polls. Delegates will also hear a keynote speech from shadow charities minister Greg Clark.

Navca is also carrying out a poll of its members on the Tories' green paper on the charity sector, Voluntary Action in the 21st Century. It will use the results to inform questions that will be put to Clark at the event, which will be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on 16 and 17 September.

"Navca has no view on who the Government should be, but we care about what the Government does and what any opposition says it would do if it was in power," said Curley.

"We want to be able to influence its policies and make sure our members understand the differences between current government policies and those of opposition parties."
