- St Vincent De Paul Society
- Society Of St Vincent De Paul
The St Vincent de Paul Society was founded by a 20 year old student named Frederic Ozanam in 1833. It was established by like minded individuals who wished to put their faith into action.
This compassionate outlook, enthusiasm and vision continues today in Australia. There are thousands of people who every day share their time, care for humanity and energy to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged people all around Australia.
The St Vincent de Paul Society provides a 'hand up, not just a hand out' to people in need.
The St Vincent de Paul Society is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to serving the most disadvantaged and underprivileged people in our community.
The Society's members and volunteers provide financial and practical support, advocacy and friendship to the most vulnerable in our communities. This support is delivered through local groups, known as 'conferences', as well as through our human services and Centres of Charity (Vinnies shops).
