The St Vincent de Paul Society in SA will always be there to support people affected by disasters.

In the case of a local natural disaster the State Council of SA will work with local volunteers to determine the community's needs at that time. This may be way of material support, financial support and emotional support.

In times of large disasters, State Council will work across the national network of the Society to instigate a national appeal and will work nationally to address the needs of the community with the full support of every state and territory.

Information relevant to a disaster, the process to obtain help, as well as ways you can support people affected will be disseminated through our website and social media
