The St Vincent de Paul Society is concerned not only with alleviating need but also with identifying the unjust structures that cause it. We are compelled to advocate for a more just and compassionate society, and to speak out on the barriers that keep people trapped in a cycle of poverty and disadvantage. Our members have identified priority areas of greatest concern to local communities around NSW.
