‘Lobbying government to prioritise the needs of the most vulnerable’
Our Public Affairs Unit seeks to influence social policy decision making to further the interests of the most vulnerable in society. We strive to promote the interests of the people we serve by building relationships and lobbying local government, devolved national governments and the UK government.
Our team represents and defends the work of The Salvation Army in the UK and Republic of Ireland in the political and policy sphere to achieve greater social justice. We aim to make sure that social policy remains a political priority. Below you can find our most recent work on our key policy areas, elections, and news updates.
