The Salvation Army have taken to boasting about their involvement in workfare, despite them claiming last year that they weren’t involved in the scheme.
The charity has come out fighting after hundreds of people contacted them in disgust at their use of forced work. Their website now features the story of someone they claim ‘volunteered’ for Mandatory Work Activity, despite the regulations clearly stating you cannot volunteer for this programme.
The Salvation Army are once again banning those criticising them from their facebook page, despite entering into a dialogue earlier where they were unrepentant about their use of unpaid workers. Several people have taken to visiting their young people’s Alove UK page instead, whilst others have gone international. They can also still be contacted on twitter @salvationarmyuk
And don’t forget the other so called Christian charity who are happy to force people to work for free. YMCA (@YMCA_England) are also involved in the Mandatory Work Activity scheme, despite their President, Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu (@JohnSentamu) claiming to be firmly opposed to workfare. They can be found on facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/THEYMCA
