“Inspired by Vincent de Paul, Vincentians in Partnership is an umbrella organisation set up to foster networking and collaboration among those organisations in Great Britain which are inspired by the spirit of St Vincent de Paul. The ethos of the Vincentian Family is rooted in the Gospels and may best be summed up by these words of Jesus: “Whatever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters you do it to me.” The VIP has 4 main strands of activity:
- to support and empower those trapped in poverty
- to oppose structural injustice and work for justice
- to deepen the spirituality of its members
- to work together on practical projects which enhance the quality of life of those in need.”
