What We Do
Depaul UK is part of Depaul International - parent of the Depaul Group worldwide family of charities that works with people who are homeless.
The Depaul Group is inspired by the values of Saint Vincent de Paul, a major social reformer in 17th Century France.
Depaul works to support people who are homeless and marginalised around the world. We currently operate in the UK, France, Ireland, Slovakia, Ukraine and USA.
Our approach is tailored to the people, communities and issues in each of these countries. Wherever we work, we do so with common values and the same respect for each person we meet.
Globally, Depaul's work ranges from providing safe shelter, accommodation, food and health services to helping people affected by homelessness receive the education, employment and social services they need.
Our goal is to empower people who face homelessness, improving their quality of life and helping them stay off the streets for good.
