SVP launch national recruitment campaign following the largest number of calls for help in its history

Following a record number of calls for help in 2021 the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) has launched a national campaign seeking volunteers.
During 2021 a total of just over 191,000 calls for help were made to the Society throughout the country. This is 12% up on the number of calls in 2020 and the highest on record for the Society.
As the Society prepares for a full return to home visitations shortly the national campaign for volunteers will primarily focus on over 900 Visiting Conferences (Branches) throughout the country. But volunteers are also being sought to help in shops, social housing as well as children and family services.

The recruitment campaign theme is ‘You know who you are - But we don’t’ To apply to become an SVP volunteer.
