Kevin Curley CBE

Kevin Curley CBE

Kevin Curley is a high-profile, highly-regarded champion of local voluntary action.  He was CEO at the National Association of Voluntary and Community Action (Navca – previously NACVS, the National Association of Councils for Voluntary Service) since 2003.  He retired in January 2012, handing the reins to Joe Irvin, and a few months later received a CBE in the Birthday Honours List for services to the voluntary and community sector.

Curley spent 40 years in the CVS network.  Previous positions included chief executive at the Charnwood, Derby, Hull and Newcastle CVS branches. He has also been programme director in Tanzania for VSO.

He is chair of trustees at Pickering Family Centre and a member of both the Treasury Third Sector Review group and the Cabinet Office public services action plan steering group.

In March 2012 he joined the board of trustees at NCVYS and in September 2012 he was appointed to the board of CFG. 

Curley attended the University of York where he read English literature with education and also did a diploma in social administration.

He now describes himself as a voluntary sector adviser.  When he stepped down from Navca, he told civilsociety.co.uk: "I'm not going to stop working for the local voluntary sector, I'm simply going to stop running an organisation."
