VAC has been supporting the Calderdale Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) since 2000. Known for continuously developing and delivering needs led services and projects, VAC is a strong, recognised name within the local VCS landscape.

Over the past 5 years, VAC began expanding and offering its services to different areas of the UK including organisational support and its quality assurance system Quality For Health & Wellbeing.

Since it became constituted as a Company Limited by Guarantee, VAC is formally a membership organisation. Our members hold us accountable to ensure we support the VCS effectively and responsively.


Through a network of members, VAC can create a strong and vibrant sector, championing the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) and ensuring the sector has a voice and is represented across local platforms to support local community based investment and provision.

How We Run

VAC is a charity and company limited by guarantee. Our Trustees are members of VAC, made up of representatives from local voluntary and community organisations and individuals who support VAC’s vision, aims and ambitions. Our Trustees set VAC’s priorities, have strategic responsibility for VAC and are responsible for the day to day management of the organisation, ensuring we meet our legal requirements. They delegate responsibility to the Chief Officer, who works alongside the management team to ensure that VAC runs effectively and efficiently.
