@RevPaulCA It is offensive that you would refer to volunteering and work experience as 'Forced Labour' since The Salvation Army helps support victims of Human Trafficking who go through harrowing and unimaginable ordeals.
We can’t sit on the sidelines when unemployed people need more help than ever to get and stay in work. In these tough economic times, need is so great and if we can help, then we want to be able to do so. We have seen first hand the positive benefits people gain from being in work, volunteering or taking part in a work-experience placement – becoming part of a community where you are building your confidence, job skills, and discovering new things about yourself. To find out more about the people who we help back into work, please visit workforall.salvationarmy.org.uk
The Salvation Army is committed to helping vulnerable people. You can find out more about our work with victims of trafficking, people who are homeless, elderly and unemployed: http://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/uki/heretohelp
