Salvation Army Drops 17 Places on Australian Charity Reputation Survey
One of Australia's best-known welfare organizations, the Salvation Army, has dropped 17 places from last year in the 2014 AMR Charity Reputation Index, a yearly survey which measures the overall reputation of the country's 40 largest charities.
The Salvation Army dropped from No. 10 in 2013 to No. 27 this year.
The results follow allegations of child sex abuse by Salvation Army staff that were the subject of a royal commission inquiry. More than 100 children came forward with reports of physical, sexual and indecent abuse.
