The AIVC acts as an umbrella and representative voice for the 5 Independent Centres. With strength in numbers, goodwill and political support for the Association quickly followed, allowing the Individual Centres to begin plotting their way to a sustainable future. Some key challenges still lie ahead for theAssociation, and they will work in partnership to ensure that Volunteering intheir area is delivered through a local vehicle. The Association is currently embracing new ways of working, and believe that through supported strategic planning, the AIVC will continue to deliver value for money, front line community services and ensure that their impact is felt locally. Their strategic approach to fulfilling their services should be embracedby those organisations and key decision makers in the Volunteering Infrastructure across Northern Ireland.
