The St Vincent de Paul Society (England & Wales) is part of an international Christian voluntary network dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms by providing practical assistance to people in need. A request for help is a direct request or referral made by or on behalf of an individual or family during a time of need. This service is carried out by our volunteers who organise themselves into SVP groups that serve a specific locality. If we have an SVP group in your area then members of the group will visit you to understand your problem and to offer you help, where they can. Volunteers can support in areas such as befriedning, end of life support, food and clothes and many other areas.
