The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days. Today the SVP England & Wales highlights its continuing strong links with young people, through the development of its new 'Mini Vinnies' programme
'Mini Vinnies' are children aged between 7 to 11 (or younger) who, with the permission of their parents and the support of their Schools, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible 'Vincentians for life'.
Our Minnie Vinnies group is open to all children from years 3 to 6 and meet weekly with Mrs Catalano and Mrs Paskin. The children are involved in fundraising activities, lead assemblies and promote interaction of the school with the local community.
