Our Purpose

Our purpose is to promote a unique experience of choice, lifestyle and belonging for all people as they age. Our services span across Australia in twenty residential aged care centres, seven retirement villages, one respite centre, and community care services.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet, work and reside on. We also pay respects to Elders past and present.

Find support that suits you, whether you need support in the comfort of your own home, to receive 24-hour care in an aged care centre, or to enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle in a vibrant retirement village.

Our Mission, Vision and Values

The Salvation Army is a Christian movement dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus. We share the love of Jesus by:

  • Caring for people
  • Creating faith pathways
  • Building healthy communities
  • Working for justice

Wherever there is hardship or injustice, Salvos will live, love and fight alongside others transforming Australia one life at a time with the love of Jesus.

Recognising that God is already at work in the world, we value:

  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Respect
  • Diversity
  • Collaboration

We commit ourselves in prayer and practice to this land of Australia and its people, seeking reconciliation, unity and equity.

The Salvation Army recognises the Aboriginal people as the traditional owners and custodians of our land.

We aim to respect, value and acknowledge the unique cultures, spiritualties, histories and languages of the oldest surviving culture in the world, and to engage in a unified and positive relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.
