ICAN is excited to announce our new partnership with Weipa Community Care thanks to the generous funding provided by the Ecstra Foundation. Our collaboration will give remote Indigenous communities across Cape York access to much needed financial counselling services through our 'ICAN Connect' program.
EnergyAustralia scholarship program reaps the rewards
Johanna Barnard works with the Centacare Reunification Service in South Australia and was a recipient of one of the ICAN Learn/ EnergyAustralia [EA] scholarships in 2018. She is the first graduate of the EA scholarship program which provided opportunities for people across South Australia, Queensland, NSW and Victoria to become financial counsellors and really make a difference to vulnerable consumers.
Bernadette Pasco, Executive Officer at ICAN Learn, caught up with Johanna to congratulate her and get some background about the program's benefits and outcomes.
The pesky pandemic has followed us into 2021, as the annual cyclone, flood and fire season marches on. Here at ICAN we are also witnessing the stress, finances or 'lack there, of' cause at this time of the year. If your New Year's resolution was to keep well in amongst all of this, we have the article for you. ICAN has put together a 'Top 5 Well-Being Resources' you can access from your smart phone.
