Economic Social Impact Survey 2016

25 May 2016

Now in its fifth year, The Salvation Army's Economic and Social Impact Survey (ESIS) surveyed more than 1600 clients across Australia.

“The key findings of this new report paint a bleak picture of what real life is like for Australians on the breadline," says The Salvation Army's Territorial Communications and Fundraising Secretary, Major Bruce Harmer. “We cannot keep putting a band-aid on disadvantage. We need serious funding to develop innovative solutions to the complex issues of entrenched poverty."

The Salvation Army acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.
