About Financial Counselling Australia

FCA is the peak body for financial counsellors in Australia.

Financial Counselling Australia (FCA)'s role is to support the financial counselling profession, providing a voice in national debates. We also advocate on behalf of the clients of financial counsellors for a fairer marketplace that will prevent financial problems in the first place.

FCA is a federated body and its members are each State and Territory financial counsellling association in Australia.

Financial Counselling Australia was formerly called the Australian Financial Counselling and Credit Reform Association (AFCCRA). The change of name took place on 9th May 2011.

On 29 June 2016, FCA's legal structure changed from an incorporated association to a company limited by guarantee. The board has seven directors: four from the financial counselling sector (elected) and three external, skills-based directors (appointed by the board).

A one page overview of the new structure is here.

The constitution for Financial Counselling Australia Ltd is here.
