Our voice

At the heart of everything we do, advocacy on behalf of the people we help is key.

The St Vincent de Paul Society works tirelessly to bring a voice to the voiceless in our community.

Our members and volunteers daily serve people to bring an end to injustice and encourage self-sufficiency through our good works.

“The strongest hand of true friendship is charity; the exercise of charity is the practice of good works.”

The St Vincent de Paul Society is concerned not only with alleviating the immediate needs of people who are disadvantaged within our communities but also with identifying the unjust structures that cause them.

The Society is committed to identifying the root causes of poverty and to contributing to their elimination.

Advocacy enables Vincentians to affirm the dignity of each person and envisage a more just society in which the rights, responsibilities and development of all people are promoted.

Through advocacy the Society's members are able to address issues which will impact on the future social, economic and ecological living conditions of people who are disadvantaged and their children.

“The question agitating the world today is … a social question. It is the struggle between those who have nothing and those who have too much, it is a clash between wealth and poverty, which is shaking the ground at our feet.”
