Family Support Financial Counselling Provides:

The initial session will assess financial options and ongoing sessions are also available to work through the selected options. Financial counsellor will assess the possible options for clients by looking at income, expenditure, assets, liabilities and if any legal action has commenced. Options are presented to the client also informing of the civil legal process that will continue if nothing is done. Specialist Financial counselling is also available to individuals with issues related to gambling debts.

Financial counsellors do not provide loans or arrange for loans to be obtained and can only contact third parties such as lenders with written authorisation as required by the Privacy Act. If the option presents (after assessment of income and expenditure, assets and liabilities) financial counsellors can negotiate with creditors, debt collectors and others for repayment options after a commitment by the person to address their problems associated with gambling.

Financial counsellors in New South Wales must be accredited with the financial counsellors Association of NSW Inc.(FCAN). There are strict rules as to who may be a financial counsellor; primarily those financial counsellors belong to FCAN and must act solely out of interest for the well being of the consumer.
