The work of the St Vincent de Paul Society is largely carried out by members of the community who voluntarily give their time, skills and experience to help those less fortunate.

The Society provides many opportunities for volunteer participation and is an activity open to any person. There are opportunities available both during and after business hours. Many volunteering positions are ongoing but there are also short-term opportunities available.

Please note the St Vincent de Paul Society has a large number of volunteer applications and cannot guarantee to place volunteers in their service of choice, but will always recognise your rights as a volunteer.
