Some details about the van may help, e.g. which year, which engine, etc.

I don't know much about the A series, but there are a few here that do :)
1997 Mk5 SWB 115 Minibus 70ps Di (Gone, but not forgotten!)
2004 Mk6 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.0 TDDi - Vantunered (Also gone)
2008 Mk7 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.2 TDCi - Also Vantunered

From the description it sounds like flat battery, or if the battery is good, then the starter is playing up, but as Al said we need more info, engine, year etc and any other info that you recall that might help such as previous recent starting probs.
