National Voice for Financial Counselling

Financial Counselling Australia (FCA) is the peak body for financial counsellors in Australia.

People from all walks of life can find themselves with money problems. Financial counsellors are non-judgmental, qualified professionals who provide information, support and advocacy to people in financial difficulty. Working in community organisations, their services are free, independent and confidential.

"We're on your side."
