Volunteering - Victoria

Are you looking to contribute positively to your local community? 

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. We simply couldn't provide our services without our dedicated volunteers and the huge contributions they make providing critical support in their local communities.

Our volunteers help people to take control of their destiny and contribute to a more supportive, connected and inclusive community.
