Help SVP in any way you can

Thu, Nov 30, 2023

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is active in every community in Galway city and county and is available, on a strictly confidential basis, to anyone feeling they need help for any reason, according to Seamus McManus, SVP Galway Area President.

The Society’s volunteers (and they would welcome new members) offer support and friendship to anybody having difficulty dealing with the assorted challenges life throws at us; trying to meet bills, pay for education, deal with illness, support family members, address mental health problems, family breakdown, addiction issues, loneliness and so on.

“In addition to home visits by volunteers, the SVP Resource Centre in Croí na Gaillimhe, Mill St is open every day for services to vulnerable individuals and groups in the form of lunch clubs, homework clubs, intergenerational activities, language classes etc and offers a great social hub in the middle of the city,” he said.
