Earlier this year, we held our first Financial Capability Focus Group in Adelaide. We heard from a group of passionate financial counsellors about how we can better support people in financial difficulty.
Since then we’ve made a lot of progress, including launching:
- an income contributions calculator
- an insolvency eligibility tool
- bankruptcy case studies
- new information to help people with budgeting, dealing with debt and better connecting people with support services
We’re keen to hear feedback from financial counsellors on these initiatives, including ideas on how we can build on them and what other resources would be helpful for clients. We’d also like to understand who your vulnerable client groups are, and how we can better reach them.
