The South Australian Financial Counsellors Association

We provide resources and support to financial counsellors.

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.
