The chief executive of the National Association for Voluntary and CommunityAction is to retire next March after nine years as its leader.

"Leading NAVCA is for me the dream job. This is a great social movement always speaking up for local voluntary action and supporting citizens who want to make their communities better places to live", said Curley.

His retirement will coincide with his 60th birthday and will enable him to spend more time working with Sengwer Aid and the Pickering Family Centre of which he is chair.

"I also want to play a part at national level in defending the independence of the local voluntary sector. And I also intend to give some energy to community organisations in Tanzania - where I lived from 1988 to 1992 - supporting sector leaders as they search for international funding," he added.

Mike Martin MBE, NAVCA's Chair, congratulated Curley for his achievements at the organisation. He said: "Under Kevin's leadership NAVCA has become a highly respected national charity which speaks for and effectively supports local charities and community groups. We are confident about NAVCA's future. We have a great reputation and a strong board and staff team. We have excellent support from 400 members which strengthens our credibility. Our finances are in good shape. We believe we will be able to attract very high calibre candidates for the CEO post."

I'm not entirely connviced by the question. As others have pointed out, for central government services there are economic and consistency advantages in having a platform that can be used by many areas of government activity. I am wary of the word platform' though it can have too many interpretations for my liking. cf Framework'!What I think might lie behind the question is: should more be offered centrally to help more disparate public service players (public, private or voluntary) deliver digitally? And I'd offer a big no' to this. How many infrastructure rollouts have failed because they offered something that became too big to specify, too complex to procure and ended up being so slow that other alternatives had already got there ahead of them?Digital technologies are fast-developing and fast-flowing. Good services will find a way to their audiences, and poor ones won't. We're not in 2001 now, where having a clearly navigable structure of websites was at the heart of digital strategy. We're in a networked, modular world. To a great extent it doesn't matter where services are hosted, what they are co-located with, or who actually operates them. If they are findable, and deliver benefit, then they thrive. Interfere with those natural mechanisms at your peril. (And please don't use a ton of my taxes in trying )Disclosure: As Question 1.
