COVID-19 Financial Counselling

Helpful advice to manage financial stress

With COVID-19 shutdowns and restrictions causing job losses and reduced incomes, understanding just how to manage through the crisis can be a challenge. That’s where Moneycare financial counsellors can help by providing the advice and support needed to manage debt, negotiate with utility providers or prioritise expenses.

This service is available to anyone seeking professional advice on money matters, especially when facing increased financial stress.

With 30 years of experience supporting Australians who have found themselves in changed and overwhelming circumstances, Moneycare financial counsellors can help navigate you through the tough times. Our free and confidential service has helped thousands of Aussies take control of their finances and Moneycare financial counsellors can do the same for you.

Financial counselling provides step-by-step directions to help you with your current money troubles and avoid problems in the future. The service is free and confidential with caring, qualified counsellors who will listen to your concerns without judgement.

You can get your money under control and we can help.

Early action can make a big difference!

You don’t have to struggle alone. After meeting with a Moneycare financial counsellor our clients have reported finally being able to sleep at night, seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and having a clear idea of what to do in the future.

Financial counselling can help restore hope in what can seem like a hopeless situation.

Are you:

  • Having trouble keeping up with credit card repayments and loans?
  • Unable to pay your electricity or phone bill?
  • Being followed up for money you owe?
  • Facing legal action for debts?
  • Experiencing difficulty paying your rent or mortgage?
  • About to have your car repossessed?
  • Facing or considering bankruptcy?
  • Wanting help managing your fines?
  • Finding it tough to make ends meet?
  • Thinking of accessing your super?

Moneycare financial counsellors can talk through these issues with you and help find a solution – whether that is speaking with banks or utility providers to arrange payment plans, advocating to lenders on your behalf, or working with you on a household budget.

Please note: Moneycare financial counselling does not provide emergency cash loans, vouchers or emergency relief. If you need urgent financial help and are in ACT, NSW or Queensland call our emergency relief team on 1300 371 288. If you are in the NT, SA, Tasmania, Victoria or WA, call or visit your nearest Salvos.
