The Salvation Army COVID-19 help and updates
As the COVID-19 emergency continues to grip the country, it is affecting individuals and families in ways never imagined possible. Thousands losing their jobs and facing potential eviction; elderly people confined to their homes without much support; and those already experiencing hardship faced with the prospect of worsening conditions.
In light of this pandemic, The Salvation Army is working hard to continue providing essential assistance and services to communities across Australia. We have adapted some of our services based on government directives and for the safety of our community and are now providing take-away instead of sit-down meals, and using phone and video calls, rather than always meeting face-to-face.
The Salvos are here to provide emergency relief assistance. In tough times like this, you don't have to go it alone. Reach out to us and we can support you in a range of ways during COVID-19.
