St VincentDePaul Society
The contact for this group is:
The aim of the St Vincent de Paul Society is the same today as it was at its conception in the 19th Century: to tackle poverty in all its forms through the provision of practical assistance to those in need. The concept of need is broader than financial hardship, so visiting the sick, the lonely, the addicted, the imprisoned and those suffering from disabilities form a large proportion of the Society's work. The Society is active in 150 countries and has nearly 600,000 members worldwide. In England and Wales, its more than 10,000 volunteers annually carry out more than 500,000 recorded visits. The essential work of the Society is person-to-person contact, and, as this is a fundamental part of the Society's ethos, it does not make donations to any work in which members are not personally involved. However, it recognises that material or financial assistance may help those it visits overcome crises and develop longer-term solutions to their problems. - See more at: http://svp.org.uk/WhatWeDo#sthash.b1diozju.dpuf
