The Salvation Army (TSA) is a Christian free church with distinct social activities. Originally founded in 1865 in London, TSA grew rapidly and would encircle the world by the turn of the century. The practical social activities include homeless care, homes for children, schools, hospitals, disaster relief. Well-known are also the second-hand stores, the income of which is donated to charitable institutions.
On 1 March 2016, after 95 years apart, the Salvation Army announced that it would bring its Southern and Eastern territories together as one again, to achieve significant long-term financial savings and strengthen the delivery of the overall mission of both territories.
The Salvation Army had operated as two distinct entities in separate parts of Australia, with separate IT, HR, and Finance departments. This meant duplication in services, programs, and policies throughout the national organization, which had to be managed and resolved by the Australian One Project team.
