Financial Counsellors supported by the PSA, SACOSS and SAFCA

17 June 2019

On Wednesday 12 June 2019 a joint press conference was held with the Public Service Association (PSA), South Australian Council Of Social Services (SACOSS) and South Australian Financial Counsellors Association (SAFCA). The press conference was held to launch a joint statement which demonstrated that the already overstretched and under funded NGO sector will not be able to provide an effective Financial Counselling service to the community replacing the service provided by Department for Child Protection (DCP) Financial Counsellors.

It was made very clear by all speakers this service is essential to assist the most vulnerable families and young people who have previously been able to access an extremely time critical and extensive level of support through DCP Financial Counsellors.
