The Society of St. Vincent de Paul's message is simple: when this is all over, many people will still be trapped by poverty.

Unfortunately, low income families have become no income families overnight as they wait for state supports to come through. This is coupled with the fact that calls to SVP for the first quarter of 2020 were at their highest level for over a decade. You can help in the following ways:

Online:
If a donor chooses to donate online and would like to direct their donations to our local Conference, they simply need to enter St. Bernadette’s Conference, Clogher Road, on the donation form: ‘Reason for donating/specific location to help’. The donations will then be forwarded to our local conference.

Phone:
As we know many donors cannot get out and about easily at this current time. We have introduced a new local number 0818 176 176 to facilitate people donating without leaving their home. If a donor calls this number, they will be asked where they would like to direct their donation. We will then forward donations onwards as per donors requests when the campaign is complete.
