KEVIN CURLEY, chief executive, Navca
We are dismayed Capacitybuilders is still considering taking direct responsibility for commissioning all national programmes. We feel Capacitybuilders should maintain the consensus that ChangeUp should be sector-led. We support the option to retain the hubs, but with better co-ordination.

RUSSELL PRIOR, executive director, company giving, CAF
Durning has crystallised some key tensions within the set-up of ChangeUp and made some first-rate recommendations as to how it can be strengthened. That these are based on ongoing consultation directly with the sector adds to their potency.

CHRIS PENBERTHY, director of strategy and planning, Volunteering England
We would like to see that any activity funded by Capacitybuilders was clearly informed by the sector and accountable to the sector, with clear input from the sector into its design and delivery.

BEN HUGHES, chief executive, Bassac
More leadership is needed, and Capacitybuilders has shown a genuine desire to engage with the sector. I have concerns about losing the emphasis on a sector-led programme. We could be shifting further away from that unless there are clear safeguards. There must be an increased focus on users.
