Good news – after a roller-coaster few months of disturbing messages around Commonwealth funding for financial counselling, it now seems that funding for financial counselling and ER will be very similar – largely intact (a minimal cut).
More information soon as it emerges, but we wanted everyone to hear the good news .
A big thank you to all the financial counsellors, peak bodies, agencies, and other supporters who visited MPs, made phone-calls, assisted with media, wrote letters of support to the Ministers …. and supported FCA with encouraging emails and calls. Support came from many wonderful organisations.
Thank you to the journalists who wrote wonderful articles drawing attention to the important work that financial counsellors do.
It looks like all of your work made a difference. There are a lot of us who appreciate all that you’ve done
