Campaigning and policy
We campaign so that people who struggle to be heard are listened to by people who have the power to make a positive difference.
Our task is to harness the experience and expertise of our frontline service users and personnel in order to influence decision makers of all political persuasions.
The Salvation Army believes that a fairer society, which upholds and supports all marginalised people, actually benefits us all. We assert that our society will not work for anyone if it does not work for everyone.
