CAVA is the main point of contact between third sector organisations and other strategic partners such as local authorities and funders. We are committed to building better relationships between voluntary and community organisations and across the third, faith, public and private sectors.
We run a variety of forums which enable you to hear about policy changes, stay updated, develop partnerships and influence the development of services. See below the variety of ways in which CAVA makes sure the voice of the voluntary and community sector is amplified and heard by decision makers.
