Financial Counsellors assist South Australians in financial difficulty by providing information, support and advocacy for their clients. Financial Counsellors work within the Community sector. Their services are free, independent and confidential.See the SAFCA Brochure »
Although we don’t offer financial counselling ourselves, you can enter your postcode or suburb to the right to find your nearest financial counsellor. Financial counselling services are free.
Struggling to pay the mortgage or rent or juggling debts? Talk to a phone financial counsellor from anywhere in Australia by ringing: 1800 007 007 (Mon to Thurs: 9.30am–8pm and Friday: 9.30am-4.30pm) And remember – the sooner you ring the more options you will have!
