About the organisation

Organisation Name : St Vincent de Paul Society

The Organisation

Based in Box Hill, the St Vincent de Paul Society – affectionately known as “Vinnies” – is one of the most well recognised, highly regarded and quite frankly, best loved charitable organisations in Australia. It is recognised for offering a “hand up” to people in need while respecting their dignity and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny. It has an enviable reputation for the quality of its work and is widely regarded as an “employer of choice”.

In 2020 the central offices of the two core operations of the Society’s Group – Vinnies and VincentCare (which works with individuals experiencing homelessness) – co-located in Box Hill. As a result, a transition to a shared services model is currently underway, which will provide internal services for all entities across the Group.
