Who we are
ALOVE UK is The Salvation Army for a new generation - an expression of The Salvation Army for young people and young adults.
As The Salvation Army's national youth office, we are responsible for the implementation of The Salvation Army's national youth work strategy for the UK and Republic of Ireland.
We work with young people (primarily aged 12-25), youth workers and youth focused services within and external to The Salvation Army.
ALOVE UK is part of the 'Programme Service' - a department of The Salvation Army's national head office.
We are calling the ALOVE Movement to dynamic faith, radical lifestyle, adventurous mission and a fight for justice.
The four essential purposes of ALOVE:
About our name
In 2004 The Salvation Army adopted the made-up word 'ALOVE' to represent 'a love' and commitment to young people that's alive, aware and 'all out'.
Basically - we want to say to young people that The Salvation Army is committed to living out and representing ‘a love' that is unconditional, gracious, serving, compassionate, radical and audacious; a love motivated by the Christian faith, lived out in humility and service to others.
