Almost 600,000 people are living below the poverty line in Ireland. We are working to change that.

The role of the SVP is not only to provide immediate help to people in need, but also to tackle the root causes of the problems that we see.

Homelessness, low pay, child poverty, inadequate social welfare, lack of opportunity, the high cost of housing, energy, childcare and education are some of the social injustices that SVP is challenging.

We seek to influence policy makers and public opinion based on extensive research and direct feedback from our volunteers who work with people experiencing poverty across the island of Ireland.

At SVP we turn concern into action and advocate for more socially just policy with the aim of ending poverty in Ireland.
