Assistance for Christmas

We understand that the rising cost of living is placing increasing stress upon individuals and families every day around Australia. The added pressures of the Christmas season to buy gifts or wanting to provide a nice meal for the family can seem completely out of reach. If this is your situation, The Salvation Army Australia is here to help.

Our friendly and compassionate staff are ready to listen to you and have a non-judgemental, confidential conversation about your difficulties. Please get in touch with us by contacting your local Salvos below. Ask if we can support you with vouchers, food or toys for Christmas, or just someone to talk to or pray with you.
