The relocation of the Public Relations and Editorial teams who were previously located at THQ Blackburn will ensure that all THQ teams have adequate space while the national offices and national structure are being implemented.


Salvos Feel Optimistic About…

We’re continuing to work through the responses to Pulse Survey 3. The survey was open to all Salvos and closed on May 2.

According to the survey responses, many Salvos are feeling optimistic about…

  • Organisation-wide unity
  • Better outcomes for the people we serve
  • More resources for the frontline
  • The local mission delivery operating model
  • The National Vision

We look forward to sharing more results with you in the weeks ahead.
