St Vincent de Paul Society

The St Vincent de Paul Society aims to tackle poverty in all its forms through the provision of practical assistance to those in need. The concept of need is broader than financial hardship, so visiting people who are sick, lonely, in prison, or suffering from addiction is also a significant proportion of their work. The essence of their work is person-to-person contact and spending time with people which is the greatest gift.
