Policies for Handling Reports of Abuse

Today’s Salvation Army has strong policies in place to protect children and it ensures those policies reflect that the protection of children is of the most serious of our obligations.

The Salvation Army engages independent investigators to investigate all claims of abuse and to ensure evidence gathered on historical abuse claims is handled correctly and shared with the authorities. Today's Salvation Army no longer runs children's homes and has strong policies to protect children in our care.

All reports of abuse are taken very seriously by our Centre for Restoration.

We continue to improve our processes so that children will never be placed in situations like this again and welcome the recommendations from the Royal Commission on how we can further protect children in our care.

If you are concerned about any situation involving mistreatment, please contact our Centre for Restoration for guidance.
