Become a Trustee

Join us to continue improving local lives in Calderdale & Kirklees!

Voluntary & Community (also known as VAC) are looking to continue building their board of trustees to reflect the diversity and expertise of the great communities we work with.

So, who are VAC? 

In a nutshell, VAC is a Charity for Charities and the Voluntary and Community Sector providing services and initiatives to organisations across Calderdale and Kirklees.  Our vision is to promote positive social change to improve local lives.  To find out more about our work and ethos, please explore our website.

VAC Trustees

If we were to strip back our Trustee recruitment goals, we are looking for people.  Passionate people with an interest in the development & success of Voluntary & Community Sector. If you also have professional and/or lived knowledge or experience in the following areas that would be an added bonus:

  • Local Government
  • Estate/Property Development or Management
  • Health Background

We are looking for people who may be considering taking their first step in a Trustee role or may have been involved with trusteeships previously. 

When considering a trustee role, it can be a tough decision to choose which great cause and organisation could best benefit from your time and knowledge.  By becoming one of our Trustees, you will not only be shaping the work of VAC but you will be supporting and championing the work of the Voluntary and Community Sector across the Calderdale and Kirklees landscape!
