What does Vinnies do?
Vinnies provides welfare and support services to anyone in the Wellington area. These services are run by professional staff and supported by dedicated volunteers.
As a charity and NGO, these services rely on the nine Op Shops to raise the funding needed to continue supporting Wellington communities and their people.

Our members visit people in their homes, hospitals and nursing homes to help find the most appropriate response to their needs and simply to be a friend.
