Financial Counselling


If you find yourself facing difficult financial circumstances or consistantly have trouble balancing your budget, our Financial Counsellors at Doveton Community Support Services can help. Financial Counselling is offered as a free service and anyone is able to access, regardless of geographic location.

Financial counsellors are non-judgmental paralegal professionals, who provide information, support and advocacy to people in financial difficulty. 

They can work on negotiating suitable repayment arrangements with creditors on your behalf, inform you about your rights when dealing with banks and other lenders and we can check which grants and payments for which you may be  eligible.

To book into Financial Counselling please give us a call on 9794 3500 so we can schedule you an appoinment.

A client is asked to bring to the appointment:

  • Proof of Income (wages slip and/or Centrelink statement)
  • Current Bank Statements
  • All bills, fines, letters etc relevant to your financial situation
