I was back in London on Tuesday to chair a meeting of voluntary arts umbrella bodies organised by Voluntary Arts England. This was a discussion amongst some of our biggest and best resourced membership organisations about how we might work more closely together to support each other’s lobbying and advocacy. We also talked about encouraging voluntary arts groups to use School of Everything ( to seek new members, using the NCVO Value of Infrastructure Programme to help measure the performance of umbrella organisations (see and using the Community Learning Champions scheme ( to link voluntary arts ambassadors and regional representatives.
