National Recognition for Local Partnership
Two Alliance Steering Group members - CVS Uttlesford and Maldon and District CVS – were this week shortlisted for an award in the inaugural NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action) awards recognising the contribution of voluntary sector infrastructure across the county.
The nomination, which was received in the Collaboration and Partnership category, was in recognition of the strong partnership work that had taken place between the two organisations to set up the Essex Shed Network partnership. The initiative attracted a three-year funding stream from the National Lottery for the development and expansion of Men in Shed projects across Essex.
MDCVS Director Sarah Troop said “I’m immensely proud that Maldon and District CVS and CVS Uttlesford were shortlisted in this category. The fellow nominees are all so impressive so to be recognised alongside them is a great achievement for our small teams.”
CVSU CEO Clive Emmett said “I was extremely pleased to have been shortlisted for these new NAVCA awards and we count ourselves privileged to reach the point we did in the process considering the strong field. I am also very pleased that it was in partnership with our colleagues at Maldon CVS, an organisation we find it very easy to work with collaboratively.”
