I'd just like to add some vertical padding between two bits of text and \vspace{Xcm} works fine for this; however, if the text is at the end of the page, \vspace{Xcm} does not carry onto the next page.

Is there a command or package that will add padding that will always apply at least Xcm of space?

\vspace is ignored at the beginning of a page. You ought to use \vspace* that works there.
