Founded in Paris in 1833 by Blessed Fredrick Ozanam and his companions, the society is an international, Christian, voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty (both material and spiritual) and disadvantage by providing practical assistance to those in need – irrespective of ideology, faith, ethnicity, age or gender. Placed under the Patronage of St Vincent de Paul, it is inspired by his charism and works and seeks, in the spirit of justice and charity, to help people who are disadvantaged or in need of support
