About The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is one of the UK largest providers of support to people suffering from poverty, disadvantage, and social exclusion. As part of this provision we offer supported housing for people with experience of homelessness, residential care homes for older people with support needs safehouses for victims of modern slavery, employment services for those who are economically inactive, debt counselling services, and run foodbanks and other community services.
To achieve this aim, we need compelling and well researched arguments, drawing on the experience of Salvation Army services and those who use them across the UK.
In addition to running operational services, The Salvation Army aims to challenge the underlying structural forces that cause and intensify poverty and inequality. Our Public Affairs & Social Policy Unit campaigns at a national level to ensure that decision makers, including members of parliament, government ministers and civil servants, embrace policies that will make a positive difference to the lives of those with whom we work.To achieve this aim, we need compelling and well researched arguments , drawing on the experience of Salvation Army services and those who use them across the UK.
