Why run for us?

Twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. The Salvation Army provide care and support to people in need. In fact, it’s what we've done for over 150 years. It is what we continue to do today and it’s what we will go on doing whenever and wherever there is injustice and pain in the world.

Our services are as diverse as the communities we serve. This is the support we provided in 2019;

  • We provided 3,032 places every night in our 82 Lifehouses for people experiencing homelessness.
  • We provided 84 places in Safe Houses for victim of domestic violence
  • Over the year 2,267 victims were referred to our Anti-Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery services.
  • Our 13 residential care homes provided 463 places for older people needing care.
  • We distributed Christmas presents to more than 3,000 struggling families last Christmas.

These are just some of the things that couldn’t be done without the support of kind-hearted people like yourselves.
