I was in London on Thursday to take part in a meeting at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations to discuss the future of the Value of Infrastructure Programme (VIP). VIP was a three-year project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, which finished in May. The Big Lottery Fund has now provided some ‘change funding’ to enable NCVO to develop a surer footing for the programme. The intention is to try to make the impact measurement tools for infrastructure organisations into a self-financing programme. On Thursday a small group, including people who had developed the tools and representatives of organisations who are using them, looked at how we might encourage more infrastructure organisations to get involved. I emphasised the importance of VIP continuing to have an advocacy role to promote and explain the role of infrastructure organisations in the voluntary sector.
