We’ve all driven past our local ‘Salvos’- but it’s unlikely most of us know the vast extent of the good work this international organisation does. The Salvation Army runs employment classes, suicide hotlines, professional counselling, emergency services, English speaking classes and more. Established in Australia over 125 years ago, they were established originally
in the 19th century in the UK. According to their website: “part of The Salvation Army's mission involves meeting human need wherever it occurs - without discrimination.”
