Modern Slavery Statement

The Salvation Army, as both a church and a charity, has a long history in speaking about justice, compassion and other issues that support the welfare of others. Through direct services, raising awareness, education and community support we are responding to modern slavery in Australia.

The development of this first modern slavery statement is a significant and essential step for The Salvation Army Australia Territory to articulate our vision of seeing lives transformed through the love of Jesus.

This statement recognises that our journey to know and address our modern slavery risks is ongoing and represents a living document for our continued initiatives.

The past financial year has been incredibly tough with drought, bushfires and a global pandemic.

We have seen this result in increased vulnerability but also a newfound ability to quickly, creatively and collaboratively adapt which we will strive to apply in our modern slavery initiatives.

The Salvation Army Australia acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and work and pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.

We value and include people of all cultures, languages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions and intersex status. We are committed to providing programs that are fully inclusive. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of people of all ages, particularly children.
