Who we are

Society of St Vincent de Paul in the North

Each year in Northern Ireland, the Society spends almost £3m on those in need and most vulnerable in our communities.  As well as expending this in direct financial assistance, other essential items such as food, fuel and household items are also given in support.
We offer a confidential, person centred, non judgemental service to individuals and families, whoever or wherever they are. Home visitation is the cornerstone of our work.  We are a member-led organisation and our pool of almost 1,800 volunteers work tirelessly to meet the needs of those seeking our help and support.  We have 180 local Conferences across the Region.
The ongoing and continued generosity of an ever-giving public ensure we continue to offer a high level of support to those in need to help them maintain their self respect and dignity.  Whilst financial and material donations are always welcome, we are constantly looking for new volunteers.  Please consider joining us and becoming a member – as little as 2 hours per week would be greatly appreciated.  You could make a difference in the lives of those facing poverty and reduce their isolation.
The Society is also involved in many other activities, some of which are listed below:
