Money Management Educators
In line with our ‘hand up’ approach, our volunteer Money Management Educators and Financial Counsellors assist individuals and families experiencing financial difficulties, as well as providing them with the knowledge needed to avoid similar difficulties in the future.
Many of the people we assist are so focused on their day to day existence that it can be difficult for them to look ahead and manage their income long term. In order to help them make changes that will have benefits now and into the future, we equip them with the tools they need to set up a budget, negotiate with a creditor and provide information on how to access hardship programs if they require additional help.
Another important role our volunteers play is to advocate on behalf of people who are unable to do so, and in many cases we see that there are a range of programs and concessions that are not being accessed.
