Financial counsellors offer free, independent information, options and advocacy to help people develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to take control of their own financial situation. We provide you with information about possible ways of dealing with financial problems. Your privacy is always respected.
Financial counsellors offer advice on advocacy, negotiations, debt recovery, bills, community, education, budgeting, housing, appeals, bankruptcy, complaints and referrals.
