Recent advocacy from The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army regularly produces submissions, reports, factsheets and videos to help us further our advocacy efforts. The Salvos also launch campaigns highlighting the biggest social issues Australia is facing in hopes of making progress on these issues and raise awareness around it.


Homelessness Week 2020

Sleeping rough might mean sleeping on the street, in a park or in an abandoned building. Rough sleepers are particularly vulnerable to physical harm, sickness, and poorer physical and mental health. Australia has the resources to eliminate rough sleeping altogether – we just need to work together to make it happen.

Find out what each of us can do and join The Salvation Army in our efforts to end rough sleeping.

Anti-Poverty Week 2020

Disaster doesn't discriminate, and The Salvation Army believes opportunity shouldn't either. Sudden job losses, unexpected health crises or a natural disaster can strike at any time and we believe that opportunity, recovery and hope for the future should be available to anyone. The Salvation Army is committed to helping people who are facing poverty overcome their financial stress and find hope for the future. See our campaign page to see what we can do together.
