The St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) is an international Christian voluntary membership organisation that aims to tackle poverty and disadvantage by helping and supporting vulnerable people.
To help turn ‘concern into action’ does not require extreme skills and or talents. We need:
- caring and compassionate people
- good listeners who can respect and keep confidences
- people who value, respect others and who have a non-judgmental attitude
- people who can commit to sparing a little time each week to help others.
At present, the SVP group in Carpenders Park is in abeyance, with the number of volunteers falling below the minimum required to run it. We would love to get the Society re-established and thriving again in the parish.
Please have a think about joining the SVP. You can find lots of information about the kind of support the SVP provides around the world by visiting the SVP official website or on Twitter @SVPEnglandWales.
