Affirming the Salvo mission
24 January 2018
The Salvation Army Australia Southern Territory’s 2017 annual report, released in late December 2017, has publicly affirmed that it is ‘committed to supporting the most marginalised and disadvantaged members of the community [and helping] people affected by homelessness, crisis, family violence, emergencies, natural disasters, drug, alcohol and gambling addictions and a range of other issues’.
The report gives insight into part of the Salvos’ work in Australia, and notes that the Salvation Army is streamlining ‘its administrative structure into one national organisation, through the amalgamation of the Australia Southern and Australia Eastern territories’, with the Australia Territory aiming to ‘be fully operational by January 2019’.
National commander Commissioner Floyd Tidd states that ‘our national strategy outlines a high-level plan to bring transformation, focus, innovation and accountability, which will be used to inform and direct our social programs and spiritual life development for Australians’.
