Submission to: Department of Agriculture Submission calls for the RFC Service to work much more closely with generalist financial counselling services because of the many similarities in the work of both roles. Possible benefits include better communication and professional development and ultimately better client outcomes.
Submission to: Regional Banking Taskforce, Treasury Joint consumer group submission (led by Choice) responding to a consultation on regional banking. The submission recommends that banks commit to a moratorium on branch closures, that in towns with limited or no banking services the banking industry commit to expanding mobile banking and that every town in Australia has at least one fee-free option to withdraw cash. The Taskforce is also encouraged to meet with First Nations communities to understand the particular issues they face.
