About the Centre for Restoration

The Centre for Restoration exists to support people who wish to bring a grievance against The Salvation Army for abuse suffered.

We provide support for any person who has been the victim of abuse while in Salvation Army care. When responding to complaints or allegations we are guided by the principles that all persons are entitled to:  

  • be treated with dignity and respect
  • privacy and confidentiality
  • due process and efficient,
  • prompt and timely service.

Our team is here to provide you with support and can guide you through the Personal Injury Complaints Committee (PICC) process. To do this we have developed the CARE approach. At the heart of our approach is the principle that each individual is always the main concern of our services. We encourage and support your choice in developing your personal care plan.

In its engagement with survivors of abuse, The Salvation Army believes that the principles of restorative justice are very important. With this in mind, The Salvation Army wants to engage with survivors in a restorative justice process to help them obtain the outcomes which are the most meaningful for them.

None of your personal information, or any information that identifies you, will be passed on to any other party unless you ask us to or unless we are compelled or authorised by law to do so. All information will be handled strictly in accordance with our privacy policy and privacy statement.
