Salvation Army Policy and Advocacy

Salvation Army Policy and Advocacy

Speaking out for social change.

You are here: HomeGet Involved › Advocacy


As part of our vision to “live, love and fight alongside others to transform Australia”, The Salvation Army advocates to influence key decision makers and those who have the power to implement social policy change. This includes our advocacy with federal and state members of parliament. We know from experience that systems-based advocacy, which addresses the root causes of social problems, can make the most difference to those experiencing hardship and injustice.

On this website you can find information about critical issues of social disadvantage in Australia, as well as the tools to contact your local member of parliament to raise your concerns.
