The Salvation Army is urging voters to think about the needs of others when voting in the general election on 20 September - not just themselves.

The organisation is releasing a series of videos on what it describes as the major election issues, including children, work and income, and reforming crime and punishment.

They will be unveiled at candidate debates throughout the country this week.

Social services director Major Campbell Roberts said on Monday people who are vulnerable or on low-incomes are keen to hear more about these issues.

Major Roberts said they would focus on policies that could make a difference to easing these problems.
