Our Mission. The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an international Catholic lay organisation inspired by the Gospels of Jesus Christ. This is a ground-roots organisation whose members and volunteers have been helping countless families and individuals for more than 150 years. Vincentians work in a caring and practical manner to promote human dignity and justice through personal contact with those in need, hence the motto, People Helping People. Our mission is to help people in crisis, comforting them and assuring them that their burdens are not meant to be carried alone.
Vinnies op shops are the main source of funding for St Vincent de Paul welfare and social services operations. These shops are neighbourhood treasures, thriving off the donations from our generous community.
With nine shops operating throughout central Wellington, be sure to pop in to your local Vinnies.
