Welcome to the Society of St Vincent de Paul in Dunedin, New Zealand.

The Society of St Vincent de Paul (Vinnies) is a  non-profit volunteer organisation whose work primarily involves person-to-person contact with people who have a variety of needs.

The Society tries to promote self-sufficiency, enabling people to help themselves. Any assistance offered by the Society is given in a non-judgemental spirit of compassion, based on the need of the individual or family.
