THE SALVATION ARMY FEDERAL ELECTION STATEMENT 2010

The Salvation Army has developed 8 key election statements which we believe will assist policy makers redress structural inequalities that continue to contribute to hundreds of thousands of people living in poverty and experiencing homelessness or inadequate housing, poor health, limited education options and few employment opportunities. These statements are:

1. National Poverty Reduction Statement
2. National Homelessness Statement
3. National Housing Affordability Statement
4. National Asylum Seekers and Refugees Statement
5. National Health Policy Statement
6. National Youth Policy Statement
7. National Aged Care Statement
8. National Workforce Capacity Statement

We are asking that all political parties give due consideration to these statements as in the end we as a country will be judged by our treatment of the poorest and most disadvantaged.
