Founded Date 10 August 2023
The St Vincent de Paul Society has lent the hand of support to Australians experiencing disadvantage for almost 170 years. Almost 45,000 members and volunteers dedicate their time and talents to this important work in communities across the country.
As well as visiting individuals and families in their homes, the Society runs a range of programs to support people experiencing homelessness; family violence; mental illness; help for migrants and refugees; supported employment; addiction services; education and training; youth support services and Vinnies shops.
At the core of the Society’s good work is a grassroots commitment to helping people break their own personal cycles of disadvantage. Our members and volunteers are on the ground, every day, acutely aware of the hardships that impact the social fabric of modern-day Australia.
