We need your support this Christmas

Help us make Christmas a time of hope and joy for everyone.


The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church. Our mission is based on our faith in Jesus Christ who wants everyone to experience life in all its fullness.

That is why, here in the UK and Ireland, we put our faith into action by offering practical help for people without discrimination, standing up for those who are vulnerable, fighting against injustice and encouraging people to deepen their relationship with God. The services we offer are diverse and responsive to the realities of life in the communities we serve.
