  • Crisis and transitional accommodation
  • Accredited workplace training
  • Drug and alcohol support
  • Educational and vocational programs

  • Counselling
  • Chaplaincy and advocacy support
  • Social skills and life skills
  • Creative arts and multimedia

Driving programs

Drive for Life is a driver training and mentoring program that equips young people, who are overcoming adversity, to obtain their driver’s licence. The program removes barriers and provides a pathway towards positive role models, developing independent life skills and improved employment prospects.

“Through Drive for Life I have met some of the smartest, most promising young people. It’s rewarding to see when a student commits so much time and effort logging hours to pass their P’s test. They are young people who just need a hand to head in the right direction.” – Drive for life Mentor

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.
