Salvos Caring

Salvos Caring seeks to assist the vulnerable, the lonely, the sick and the aged with love and acts of kindness. The ministry involves local corps (church) members of all ages reaching out in meaningful ways to care for people in their community.

All Salvos Caring ministries workers undergo training (3 levels undertaken on one day – 5 hours) to equip them for their role and comply with TSA policy and government requirements.

Book through your Divisional headquarters.

Salvos Caring refers to all corps based volunteers, not just those who undertake visitation ministry.

Emergency Relief Work

Emergency Relief volunteers deal directly with some of our most vulnerable people in our community. Equip volunteers with nationally recognised accredited training to ensure your service delivery is at its best and your clients are dealt appropriately and sensitively. Volunteers will learn how to prioritise clients’ needs, create capacity building pathways for clients and treat clients with dignity and respect. A must for all Emergency Relief workers including Food Room Assistants.
