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.

Vinnies volunteers provide critical support in the local community.

All new Volunteers are required to undertake an Introduction to the Society session - please view session times here.

The St Vincent de Paul Society in SA is a White Ribbon accredited organisation.
