Vacant rooms at SVP homes a concern

The relationship between government and the Society of St Vincent de Paul (‘the Society’ and ‘SVP’) remains cordial, according to the report from SVP’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), held on Sunday, September 23 at Presentation College, Chaguanas.

The two major collaborators are the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services and the Ministry of Health, North West Regional Health Authority, with the Office of the Prime Minister (Gender Affairs), disburse the subventions to the Society. The disbursements however, are not done in a timely manner and the extent of the subventions is problematic.

The Society also provides for the upkeep of its elderly residents who are unable to cash their pension cheques or obtain benefit because of inability to obtain birth certificates.
