Welcome ,

It you tell us a wee bit more about the van , ie engine size ? and fuel ? age . help will come

 There are a lot different ones and they all have their little quirks .   The starter on some get lazy with age , could be your problem .
If it will start / fire straight away from cold when jump started then your battery would appear to be on its last legs.
However do check the battery terminal posts for corrosion first before going too far though as the jump leads will bypass any bad connections here and give the illusion of a poor battery.
Before spending measure the battery voltage / get it checked at a garage ( free )

By the way welcome to the Forum you should get plenty of help though not everyone is on-line all the time.

11.79 volts **

Also got it running and checked the voltage it's sitting at 14.25volts so am I right saying the alternator is fine doesn't drop below 14 when I turn everything on

Your alternator looks to be fine.

Look here for useful battery and charging system check / testing / parasitic drain etc etc

If you scroll down you will see the chart for relative charge of the battery / condition

Your battery is either down on charge and needs charging up or is incapable of holding a charge and is dead.

Always indulge in a diagnostic check before spending money, most checks can be done t home for free.
Done all the tests and the draw test battery is definitely goosed thanks for the help guys
