A Day in the Life invites politicians and senior decision makers in government and industry to spend time with a financial counsellor to gain a better understanding of the work they do.
The goal is to give leaders in our community a deeper understanding of what financial counsellors do, and the issues that people face when struggling with bills and debts. It also gives politicians an opportunity to connect with a local service that can help their constituents.
We organise client and agency consent so the politician can:
- Talk to a financial counselling client or listen to calls on the National Debt Helpline.
- Ask questions and tour the agency to see the other support services available.
- Ask questions and seek further information about the issues raised.
To organise a visit, please email our Advocacy and Communications Officer, Kelly Higgins.
