The SVP (Saint Vincent de Paul) Society 
St Bede – Bedlington (1931) Conference

Could you spare a little time to help the St Bede SVP? 

What we do
  • At a local level we arrange visits to the sick and housebound in their homes and hospital/care homes. 
  • At St Bede's school, we contributed to the setting up of the Mini-Vinnies group                        for 7-11 year olds.
  • At national level we support the various charitable trusts, including our own                                 Holy Island Holiday Camp
  • At international level, we provide support to our twinned Conference in India,        including sponsorship of student nurses in training. In Sudan we  support                                 a baby feeding station
How can I help?
If you are willing to contribute any spare time (however small) for visiting or to volunteer your services for other roles, please make contact with one of your St Bede's representatives
