This winter, the St Vincent de Paul Society will see an increase in calls for help from families that have fallen on tough times.When her husband left, Christine struggled to look after their two young children Lily and Jack on her own. Being a single parent whilst holding down a job is hard enough, but Christine’s son was living with autism and required 24 hour supervision.As the emotional and financial stress began to take its toll, Christine reached out to Vinnies. What did Vinnies do about it? Through regular home visits, our Vinnies volunteers were able to provide assistance with:

  • food packages and vouchers
  • school supplies such as uniforms
  • medical fees and monthly bills
  • respite care, allowing a rare opportunity for Christine to relax and recharge her batteries while Jack received expert care round the clock and Lily got to play with children her own age

And just as importantly, they also offered companionship and moral support.But this winter, many families may not be as fortunate as Christine’s.
