How we help

We work in the front line of Leeds poverty crisis.

St Vincent’s is unique in Leeds. We have a wide range of services all under one roof, so we can help each person we work with in ways tailored to meet their specific needs.

We know that poverty is complicated, and there is not always an easy answer. At St Vincent’s we combat the root causes of poverty. The services at St Vincent’s educate and empower people, giving the confidence and skills to get out of poverty, and stay out for good.

Each service at St Vincent’s has been developed in response to the needs of the community.
