Voluntary Action Wakefield District
Voluntary Action Wakefield District (VAWD) saw the majority of its funding cut with immediate effect by Wakefield Council in July 2010.
The decision was made by the Wakefield Together Executive following a massive reduction in the council’s Performance Reward Grant, which was cut by the government within weeks of the May 2010 election.
The cut to VAWD’s funding was made without consultation or prior warning. VAWD warned at the time that it would review its services, leading to an inevitable reduction in the services it provided to voluntary groups in Wakefield.
