The VSI Alliance is a partnership of six organisations, made up of the four providers and two commissioners of VCSE support, working together and sharing skills to benefit VCS groups working in Calderdale:

  • Voluntary & Community (VAC)
  • Forum
  • West Yorkshire Community Accounting Service (WYCAS)
  • Locality
  • West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB)
  • Calderdale Council

Through this single point of contact, VCSE groups working in Calderdale can access a range of support services and advice, for instance to do with governance, training, funding and finances, organisational development, volunteering, and communications.

The support services on offer will be further developed over time.
