AVA believes that . . .

To fail to campaign for secure and adequate services, for those whom we know locally to require these, is to betray our charitable purpose

To propose voluntary or charitable alternatives to erstwhile public provision, or to connive in this process, is not necessarily in the public interest unless quality, equity and sustainability are matched

Public sector transformation and localisation agendas need to be assessed carefully by considering the impact upon values such as:-

Sustainability? Accountability? Equity? Entitlement at law? Rights of appeal? Quality accreditation and professional standards? Public accountability? Dependability? Level of resourcing?
