There are 135 Conferences in every region of New Zealand. Members assist those in need. No work of Charity is foreign to the Society.

St Vincent de Paul Centres and Shops aid the most vulnerable in the community. Members and volunteers assist to alleviate suffering and promote human dignity and personal integrity in all their dimensions.
