Meeting Room, UNSA Building, Callaghan Campus
Financial problems can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time. With debt building up, paying your rent or even buying food for your family can feel overwhelming.
Money troubles may leave people feeling lonely, embarrassed and isolated. If your financial situation gives you more of an icy shiver than a warm sense of safety, help is at hand. There are many services to help you get back on your feet.
The Salvation Army's Moneycare is a free and confidential financial counselling service for people facing financial difficulties or wanting to avoid financial difficulties in the future. Their staff are able to help with a range of issues, including budgeting, credit, debt and repossession. Throughout March, they'll be offering free appointments at Callaghan campus each Tuesday as part of a new pilot program to make financial counselling more accessible to students in need.
Three appointments will be available each Tuesday at 9.30am, 11am and 1pm. Each appointment lasts for 1 - 1.5 hours.
To book one of these appointments each week, call their free intake line on 1800 722 363. They'll let you know what times are available, and what you should bring to your appointment.
If you're not located near Callaghan campus, online or phone appointments are also available.
If you're having trouble keeping up with credit card bills, rent or loan repayments, are struggling to pay off fines or would just like some useful budgeting advice, Moneycare is a fantastic free resource. Give them a call.
