Why ending poverty needs to be a priority
Every week members of the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) see first hand the daily struggle for people,
both in and out of work, who simply don't have enough income to meet outgoings. It is when this struggle
becomes overwhelming that a family often requests SVP's help for the first time.
Last year, we received over 150,000 requests for assistance and our 11,000 members continued to provide support to thousands of families and individuals in need including help with essential household spend such as food, fuel,
electricity and education.
