Centre Sponsorship

The life of an orphaned and vulnerable child is unstable and unfair. When only certain children in the home receive the benefits of sponsorship other children look on and wonder why they are not, feelings of inequality and of not being valued can arise. By choosing to support a centre your gift benefits all of the children involved, ensuring equal opportunity and creating self-worth. Centre sponsorship requires less administration time and reduces costs allowing staff to focus limited resources to benefit the children in their care.

From just $35 a month (you can elect to give more), you can sponsor a Salvation Army children's home or Salvation Army children's programme in one of the many countries the Salvation Army is working in around the world. Your giving will provide food, clothing, educational opportunities, medicine and shelter for children who otherwise would go without.

When you become a sponsor you will receive a welcome pack confirming the name of the children's home or programme, along with a photo and brief description about the service. You will receive an annual newsletter from the centre or programme you sponsor and are welcome to write to the staff and children with words of encouragement.

If you would like to give a gift of sponsorship to a friend or family member, please contact the child sponsorship team on 03 8878 4543 to arrange this.

To sponsor a centre please choose from the options below.
