Financial Counselling

For direct assistance,
please give us a call

Vinnies financial counsellors are qualified professionals who offer independent financial advice and advocacy for people in financial difficulty.

Our counsellors work with clients to achieve positive financial outcomes, helping them to build their own capacity to avert financial crisis and reduce stress. They use tools such as money plans and a creditors list to work with clients to gain a clearer picture of their financial situation, then assist them to make their own choices about the best way to resolve their financial problems.

Putting people in touch with a financial counsellor quickly is the key to preventing a crisis escalating and Vinnies provides this service through face to face interview with clients. We have financial counsellors in four locations, the Perth CBD, Canning Vale, Rockingham, Mandurah and Bunbury/Busselton area.
