This is just one face of homelessness

Margaret outside her tent

Your kindness now will help the many faces of homelessness build a better future. 

There are so many faces of homelessness. Of all ages and backgrounds.

Living on the streets. Out of sight in their car, or on their friends’ couch. Or even living in a tent just like Margaret was.

Every single one of them is a person. With a story. And a life.

Margaret’s life was her daughter, but after fleeing a violent relationship, for seven years she was alone. It was kindness like yours that brought them back together again.

Today when you make a Red Shield donation, you are not only helping people like Margaret escape homelessness, you are giving them the respect, dignity, love and care every person deserves.

Your gift will go towards providing someone with practical, life-changing help. From a hot shower and a healthy meal, to the ongoing, one-on-one support it takes to help someone get back on their feet.

This is how you start a better life for someone who is homeless. This is how you leave no one in need.

Thank you.

Leave no one in need. Make your Red Shield appeal donation now

Customer DDR Service Agreement

Our commitment to you

This document outlines our service commitment to you, in respect of the Direct Debit Request (DDR) arrangements made between The Salvation Army (New South Wales / Queensland) Property Trust and you. It sets out your rights, our commitment to you and your responsibilities to us together with where you should go for assistance.

Also, we will issue an Annual receipt statement at the end of the financial year unless otherwise requested by you.

Initial terms of the arrangement

In terms of the Direct Debit Request arrangements made between us and signed by you, we undertake to periodically debit your nominated account for the agreed amount for donation to The Salvation Army to be used within Australia (unless you specify otherwise) to help provide assistance to those in need.

Drawing arrangements

  • The first drawing under this Direct Debit arrangement will occur on your nominated day.
  • If any drawing falls due on a non-business day, it will be debited to your account on the next business day following the scheduled drawing date.
  • We will give you at least 14 days notice in writing when changes to the initial terms of the arrangement are made. This notice will state/ may include the new amount, frequency, next drawing date and any other changes to the initial terms.
  • If you wish to discuss any changes to the initial terms, please contact The Salvation Army, Communications & Public Relations Department, P.O Box A229, Sydney South NSW 1232, or phone 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), or email donations@salvationarmy.org.au

Your rights

Changes to the arrangement

  • If you want to make changes to the drawing arrangements, contact us The Salvation Army, Communications & Public Relations Department, P.O Box A229, Sydney South NSW 1232, or phone 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), or email donations@salvationarmy.org.au

These changes may include:

  • deferring the drawing; or
  • altering the schedule; or
  • stopping an individual debit; or
  • suspending the DDR; or
  • cancelling the DDR completely.

Enquiries

Direct all enquiries to us, rather than to your financial institution, and these should be made at least 14 days or 10 working days prior to the next scheduled drawing date. All communication addressed to us should include your Supporter ID number.

All personal customer information held by us will be kept confidential except that information provided to our financial institution to initiate the drawing to your nominated account.

Disputes

  • If you believe that a drawing has been initiated incorrectly, we encourage you to take the matter up directly with us by contacting The Salvation Army, Communications & Public Relations Department, P.O Box A229, Sydney South NSW 1232, or phone 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), or email donations@salvationarmy.org.au
  • If you do not receive a satisfactory response from us to your dispute, contact your financial institution who will respond to you with an answer to your claim:
    • within 5 business days (for claims lodged within 12 months of the disputed drawing); or
    • within 30 business days (for claims lodged more than 12 months after the disputed drawing)
  • You will receive a refund of the drawing amount if we cannot substantiate the reason for the drawing.

Note: Your financial institution will ask you to contact us to resolve your disputed drawing prior to involving them.

Your commitment to us

It is your responsibility to ensure that:

  • your nominated account can accept direct debits (your financial institution can confirm this); and
  • that on the drawing date there is sufficient cleared funds in the nominated account; and
  • that you advise us if the nominated account is transferred or closed.

If your drawing is returned or dishonoured by your financial institution, The Salvation Army may contact you to negotiate either an extra debit or the receipt issued will be invalidated. No more than 2 (two) defaults are permitted. After this, The Salvation Army will notify you that the DDR will be cancelled. Any transaction fees payable by us in respect of the above will be payable by you to The Salvation Army.
