Family Tracing operations within Australia are ceasing
We regret to inform you, The Salvation Army will no longer be providing Family Tracing Services across Australia.
Any current active and registered searches will remain open and we will continue to work with current applicants in searching for family members.
Unfortunately, we will not be taking any new referrals for searches from Monday 19th March 2018.
If you wish to contact other agencies or find ways to search for family members yourself, we have provided contact details that you may wish to pursue in the below attachment.
We apologise and wish you all the best on your journey
