The officers, staff and volunteers of The Salvation Army devote themselves to helping people at the lowest point in their lives – homeless people who have lost everything, families trapped in poverty and older people who are forgotten and lonely. Without your help they couldn’t reach out to all of those people in genuine, urgent need, and as the demand for their work becomes greater, they are ever more dependent on your generosity.
Your donation will help The Salvation Army reach out with love, hope and practical support to vulnerable people. It could provide a life-changing counselling session, or a meal at one of our centres for a lonely older person, or give safe refuge to a victim of human trafficking.
They provide accommodation and support each night to:
- More than 3,350 people in our Lifehouse centres for homeless people
- More than 600 older people in our care homes
Their work includes:
- 120 drop-in centres offering support and help to those in need
- 70 day centres providing dignity and respect for older and disabled people
- 300 youth clubs providing a caring and safe environment for young people
- Support services for struggling parents and families
- Programmes that support people into employment and training
- Reuniting 10 families a day
Christmas Present Appeal
17 November to 16 December 2013
During these dates, The Salvation Army will be collecting new and unwrapped Christmas presents for children and families, older people in need this Christmas, and the homeless. They will then wrap the gifts and distribute them around the country. We hope you will consider donating a gift; you'll find gift suggestions that are age-appropriate on their Appeal Page. All you need to do is find your local Salvation Army Centre and ask them what they need most and arrange to get the gift to them.
