Logo SalvoThe Salvation Army is about people finding freedom

It's a pretty broad statement, but we're a pretty diverse bunch. Across the country we're engaged with every demographic and every age group.

We're active in the big cities, the country towns and even outback cattle stations. You’ll find us involved in national issues and you’ll also find us one-on-one in your local cafe.

Regardless of where we are or what we're doing, one thing always remains true: we're about people finding freedom. Freedom to live life to the full.

"I give to the Salvation Army because they provide support to those in need and are always there for the ones experiencing difficult times."
-Matthew Riles

Sir David Martin Foundation is a non-profit organisation created in 1990 by the late Governor of NSW, Sir David Martin, who had a dream of "safety, hope and opportunity for all young Australians".

"David was an Admiral in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) and someone I greatly respected. On retiring from the RAN, David was appointed Governor of New South Wales. David’s foundation provides assistance to troubled youth. The program has had remarkable success due to the wonderful work of the team at Triple Care Farm. Please see the website below for more information."
