Right now, more than 100,000 adults and kids across NSW are waiting for social housing. Some are homeless. Others are living in severe housing stress. Will you join us in calling on the NSW Government to build more social housing so everyone in our community has a secure place to call home?
Help make sure the needs of people experiencing poverty and disadvantage are high on the agenda for the next Federal Government. In the lead-up to the election, we encourage everyone who supports the Society's social justice agenda to discuss key issues with aspiring politicians.

Meet some of our members!
As a Christian I have no choice but to be involved in the fight for social justice for ALL. The St Vincent de Paul Society walks with and empowers those whose life is a struggle. Such commitment flows over to advocating for political powers to change the unjust systems which imprison the marginalised in poverty. Vinnies enables me to be part of the empowerment and the advocacy.
The gap between the rich and poor continues to widen and I see first-hand how this impacts the most vulnerable in our society. We are seeing a dramatic increase in homelessness and people struggling to make ends meet. We are also seeing more people with depression and anxiety and I am passionate about turning this around.
Be the change you want to see. Make the emotional connections with people isolated by poverty, hold their hands through the tough times and be the shoulder they can lean on. Don’t just talk about your compassion, act on your compassion to change lives. Be the light in someone’s darkness.
