As a volunteer run organisation, the work of the St Vincent de Paul Society is largely carried out by members of the community who generously give their time to help others.
Without the assistance of our volunteers in Victoria, the Society would be unable to adequately and efficiently help and support the vast numbers of people in need in our local communities.

The St Vincent de Paul Society's members and volunteers provide practical support, advocacy and friendship to the most vulnerable in our community through local groups, known as conferences, as well as our Vinnies Centres and Soup Vans.
The Society also provides assistance to migrants and refugees seeking to rebuild their lives in a new country as well as supporting individuals and communities in developing countries. The St Vincent de Paul Society provides assistance to people in need each year within their local communities.

Vinnies Centres provide furniture, clothing and household goods to families and people who are in need and are being assisted by conference members. Centres are also a valuable resource for people on low incomes, enabling them to buy quality clothing, furniture and other household items at an affordable price.
The profit from the sale of stock from the Vinnies Centres goes directly towards providing resources and support to people in need. Much of this money is used to buy food for local families in need.
Vinnies Centres in Victoria now number over 100 and are located throughout metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The St Vincent de Paul Society members and volunteers reach out to the most vulnerable in our community through our work in conferences, various special works and Vinnies Centres (Centres of Charity).
Vincen Care Victoria manages professional welfare services focusing on aged care, homelessness and supported employment for people with a disability. The services are largely government funded but also raise funds through donations and from philanthropic trusts to provide services above the government funded level.
