What is the Emergency Relief & Home Visitation Program?

The core work of the St Vincent de Paul Society is Home Visitations which provide Emergency Relief assistance through food, material aid, budget advice, utility bills, advocacy issues as well as friendship and support.

Home Visitations are carried out by ‘members’ who join local groups called ‘conferences’. Conference members are volunteers who meet regularly to provide mutual support, spiritual reflection and to discuss how best to respond to the people they assist. 

Emergency Relief Assistance

In April 2007, the St Vincent de Paul Society in Western Australia implemented a Metropolitan Call Centre which acts as a first port of call for people in crisis.

The Call Centre assists the work flow to conferences and allows the Society to gather valuable data. Volunteers in the Metropolitan Call Centre take calls from people in need and distribute the details to local conference members who arrange a Home Visit.

If you require Emergency Relief assistance please call our call centre on
1300 794 054 or email
callcentre@svdpwa.org.au.
