Our Mission / Objective

The St Vincent de Paul Society is a lay Catholic organisation that aspires to live the gospel message by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope and joy, and by working to shape a more just and compassionate society.

First established in Perth in 1865 by John Gorman, The St Vincent de Paul Society in Western Australia has maintained its long and rich history of supporting Western Australians when times are hard. The Society has continued to grow with a statewide impact thanks to over 4,000 dedicated volunteers who help thousands of Western Australians each year.

Our Services

 In addition to emergency assistance, Vinnies delivers a range of highly specialised services and programs focused on improving the lives of thousands of Western Australians. These include a recovery focused mental health service, homelessness services that removes barriers and build pathways for the most vulnerable people in our community, housing services, programs for young people, financial counselling and our retail and distribution centre operations. 

Our Beneficiaries

Vinnies services and programs are more vital than ever for vulnerable Western Australians. Whether it is through emotional support, financial advice, help with food, clothing and furniture or through advocacy, volunteers walk alongside their clients every step of the way.

Projects in Progress

  • Emergency Assistance – We assist people experiencing hardship by providing support with basic necessities such as food, clothing, household items, utility bills, and rental assistance. We offer referrals and friendship through home visitations or by attendance at one of our support centers.
  • Financial Counselling – We provide free and confidential financial counseling for people experiencing financial stress.
  • Homelessness Services – Our low threshold and change approach removes as many barriers as possible to accessibility for the most vulnerable people in the community.
  • Housing Service – We provide affordable transitional and crisis accommodation to people experiencing homelessness as a result of domestic violence, mental illness, and/or poverty.
  • Youth Skills and Pathways Program – We assist young people who face barriers to accessing or maintaining stable employment or workplace training by assisting them with resources and experiences needed to build practical and personal skills.
  • Passages Youth Engagement Hub – We provide a safe, friendly, and positive place for at-risk youth to access support and referrals to essential services.
  • Mental Health Service – We provide recovery-focused supported accommodation service for adults with a persistent and enduring mental health diagnosis who may otherwise be at risk of homelessness.
  • Vinnies Shops – We operate over 50 shops providing people with a quality, affordable and sustainable shopping experience.
