Visiting those in need and sitting side by side with them remains the core work of the Society. In Colwyn Bay there are for example many lonely old people who would appreciate a friendly face and enjoy a chat over a cup of tea, knowing that someone cares. But the local conference group of members are committed to supporting all who need help, maintaining confidentiality. In some cases support may extend to doing shopping, decorating, gardening, filling in official forms and ensuring they are receiving their statutory benefits. Regular visiting and personal care, with relationships based on trust and friendship are what gives the SVP its unique character.
SVP & Aid to the developing world (the SVP Twinnage Scheme)
A principle objective of the Society is our commitment to person to person support. Therefore all aid directed to the developing world is delivered directly by members of the SVP in the relevant country. In this way we can be assured that donations can be most effectively used, guided and delivered by those directly active in the areas of need.As part of an international organisation, the SVP for England & Wales is particularly aligned under the SVP Twinnage Scheme to supporting needs in India, Romania, Sudan, Grenada and Guyana.
