The Salvation Army respects and values all people. The Salvation Army is a Christian Church. Our mission is inspired by Jesus Christ, based on the Bible and motivated by love for God.

The Salvation Army seeks to be a welcoming, safe place for all adults and children. We find no scriptural support for demeaning or mistreating anyone for any reason.

The Salvation Army is made up of hundreds of thousands of people who worship, work, volunteer, donate and serve together every week. We welcome and serve people regardless of ability or disability, race, religion ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity. Our employment practices are non-discriminatory and we seek to create welcoming, nurturing work environments.

The Salvation Army stands against homophobia and transphobia, which victimises people and can reinforce feelings of alienation, loneliness and despair. We aim to be an inclusive church where members of the LGBT+ community find welcome and the encouragement to develop their relationship with God.

Anyone who comes to The Salvation Army will receive assistance based solely on their need and our capacity to provide help. 


We are committed to preventing, identifying and responding to the abuse of children and adults.
