How We Help

At the heart of everything we do is a strong desire to support individuals and families experiencing financial difficulty.

Financial Counselling

  • Feeling overwhelmed with your financial situation? 
  • Receiving calls from creditors, banks and debt collectors?
  • Worried about keeping a roof over your head?
  • Having an increasing pile of unopened overdue notices?

Free, independent, expert help is available.  Our financial counsellors offer free, independent and confidential information, advice, advocacy and referrals and do not benefit from the support provided to you.

Your financial counsellor will work with you to identify options and develop strategies to assist you in making decisions to improve your financial situation.
