Vision, Mission, Values

The Depaul Group's journey began over 400 years ago in a small village on the French side of the Pyrenees where St Vincent de Paul was born in the spring of 1581. All the charities which form the Depaul Group continue to work in the spirit of St Vincent de Paul in a practical and non-judgmental way, a 'Vincentian' way, with their focus on responding to need through action and innovation.  Click here for more information about the origins of our Vincentian values.

Our staff and volunteers are drawn from all walks of life - people of any faith or none - and we work with those who are on the margins of society, again people of any faith or none, from the young to the elderly. All the charities within the Depaul Group work in a way which acknowledges diversity and equality of opportunity for all.
