By visiting people in their homes, the Society of St Vincent de Paul aims to help men, women and families to break their cycle of poverty and disadvantage. Regular visiting with attention to building relationships based on trust and friendship are what gives the SSVP its unique character.
Visits are made to individuals and families, to the sick at home or in hospitals and hospices, to residential homes and to offender institutes. Loneliness, especially among the elderly is growing, so members spend a lot of time visiting housebound people to prevent them from feeling isolated. Many appreciate a friendly face and enjoy a chat over a cup of tea, knowing that someone cares.
