The Salvation Army’s theme for Anti-Poverty Week is, ‘Don’t be afraid to speak up and out for financial freedom’.


Resources for Anti-Poverty Week

Anti-Poverty Week, 17-23 October, draws attention to the poverty people are experiencing and how it can be prevented and eradicated.

This year, The Salvation Army’s theme is, ‘Don’t be afraid to speak up and out for financial freedom’. The tagline, ‘Money talks: the conversations we need to have’, encourages people to have a conversation with their loved ones or a professional Moneycare financial counsellor about their financial situation.

Social justice stocktake

When you walk around your community, what are the biggest social justice issues you see? Is it housing affordability or social isolation? Is it family violence, disability discrimination or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander disadvantage?

With many communities in Australia in lockdown, this is something that we can all do – walk around our communities and offer this simple prayer, “God, what do you want me to see here?”

Take notice of the needs around you, then take The Salvation Army’s Social Justice Stocktake survey here to provide your insights and local knowledge to the Army’s policy and advocacy and research teams.
