The Vale of Leven Trust
Join a Team of Passionate People.
The Vale of Leven Trust (VOLT) attained charity status in 2017 and our charity is based in West Dunbartonshire. The Vale of Leven encompasses Alexandria, Tullichewan, Levenvale, Haldane, Jamestown, Dalmonach, Bonhill and Balloch. Balloch is known as ‘the Gateway to Loch Lomond’. Alexandria Town Centre is the main shopping area for the Vale of Leven and is known as ‘the Heart of the Vale’.
VOLT is a local charity run by local people who have witnessed a gradual deterioration of a town centre and area in general that was once economically prosperous but has seen all our industry and large companies leave to countries overseas. We have become a commuter town which results in many residents not routinely being part of the community or visiting our town centre, resulting in reduced footfall and leading to market failure in terms of variety and scale of locally accessible services and economy. The Vale of Leven is less than 2 miles from the shores of Loch Lomond yet does not benefit economically from the high volume of tourists that visit.
The Vale of Leven has a range of social and health issues which place it in many of the lower reaches of Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) 2020.
You are welcome to visit and participate in any of our activities which are posted on different social media sites to get a feel for what we do. No requirement to tell us you are interested in the post although we do take personal details to comply with the health and safety remits of our activities.
We look forward to receiving you application.
