The Salvation Army Australia came into being in 2018 – the Australia Territory Board of Governance held its first meeting in September 2018. Previously, the Salvation Army structure had comprised the Southern and Eastern Territories. In 2022, the Salvation Army (also known as The Salvos) continues to provide a range of community services in Australia, including out-of-home care for children and young people, aged care and family support services.
The Salvation Army Australia’s Historical Records Department provides access to historical records of former residents of The Salvation Army institutions across the country.
The Salvation Army Centre for Restoration exists to assist anyone who has experienced sexual abuse, physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse, deprivation of liberty and/or cultural discrimination by a representative of The Salvation Army.
