Ten years on from the launch of the ChangeUp framework for voluntary sector capacity building and infrastructure, a discussion article from Third Sector Research Centre asks what it achieved. Less than hoped, but why? The author, Dr Rob Macmillan, invites you to share experiences and reflections about ChangeUp http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/generic/tsrc/news/2014/blog-changeup10.aspx.
He also suggests making comments and suggestions to the Independent Commission on the Future of Local Infrastructure, set up by local sector support body NAVCA. This is looking at the challenges confronting its members and others whose job it is to nurture voluntary and community action. The first blog on the Commission’s work is at http://www.navca.org.uk/blog/view/the-future-of-infrastructure, comments invited. There is more about the Commission at http://www.navca.org.uk/commission, but the survey closes today (27th June).
