Vincentian Volunteers are Christian young people aged 18-35, from all over the world, who commit a year of their lives to the service of vulnerable people. During their year with us, they live in a community of three or four people and engage in voluntary work in partnership with other, well known charity organisations in order to help the impoverished, the homeless, the disabled, refugees and those suffering with addictions within the local community.
We are a Christian organisation with a mission to provide care and support to those in need, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity and gender.
"My experience as a Vincentian Volunteer has changed my life. It was one of the most rewarding and intense years of my life so far. I worked with the poor and put my faith into action. That year changed everything-how I saw God, how I saw people, how I saw the world, and how I saw my faith. I realise now who I am, what I want and what actually matters in life. I recommend this year to anyone who is searching and wants to try something different. I found it to be a life changing experience. The VV year is not easy but it is so worth it! It gave me so much confidence about my faith and my life. I made so many friends, learnt so many things and explored so much. My community will always be in my daily prayers and there is a real family love forever present there. Vincentian ethos will remain in my heart always."
