About us

The Salvation Army Australia is an international Christian movement, united by faith and giving hope where it’s needed most. Across Australia – in cities, country towns and rural communities – our work touches every demographic and age group.  We’re involved in national issues while also bringing hope to people who may be experiencing hardship or injustice.

Since our foundations in nineteenth century London, we express our faith in charitable work to provide both the spiritual and the social support.  We believe that with one hand we reach out to God and with the other we reach out to the world.

As both a church and charity, we can preach and speak about justice, compassion, and other issues that support the welfare of others and see them as a whole person – body, mind and spirit.

Commitment to Reconciliation

The Salvation Army recognises the Aboriginal people as the traditional owners and custodians of our land. Our vision for reconciliation is to be a faith movement committed to equity, freedom and the righting of injustice.

We aim to respect, value and acknowledge the unique cultures, spiritualties, histories and languages of the oldest surviving culture in the world, and to engage in a unified and positive relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.
