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.


Elimination of Violence against Women 2020

Violence against women is preventable. It is not always physical or visible, but all forms of violence and abuse are harmful. For many women and children in Australia, it means they do not feel safe in their homes.

Together with the community, The Salvation Army is committed to speaking out against violence against women and is advocating for change.

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.

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.

The Salvation Army is a child safe organisation that is committed to ensuring the wellbeing of children and young people, and protecting them from harm.
