Voluntary Action Calderdale supports local communities in Calderdale by working with local voluntary and community groups, networks and individuals.


We do this by:

  • Supporting and helping groups and organisations to develop and deliver their own local projects

  • Helping local people to influence how local services are delivered

  • Bringing people and groups together to create solutions for local communities.


VAC own and maintain the Resource Centre in Halifax, providing an office base for our staff team.  We also use it for some of our Halifax-based training and provide a home for a range of tenants.


We currently deliver a range of projects funded by Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group, Big Lottery Fund and Calderdale Council and are also the home of Healthwatch Calderdale.


As a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, our work is governed by a Board of Trustees.  They meet at least quarterly to provide strategic guidance and support to our Chief Officer and to ensure we adhere to our legal responsibilities.


NAVCA Quality Award


VAC is a member of NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action), and they have given us a Quality Award. The award was given to us after a rigorous evaluation of the services we provide to support voluntary and community groups.
