Rate Notices: Financial Hardship Support

WALGA has worked with the Financial Counsellor’s Association of WA (FCAWA) to develop wording to increase awareness of free financial advice for rates notices. With many in our communities facing significant cost of living pressures, this free counselling service can provide support and practical help in managing financial difficulties.

Suggested wording

If you are experiencing financial hardship, financial counselling is a FREE community service available to all residents across WA. Financial counsellors can assist with money management strategies, advocate with creditors, and provide information about your options and rights. You can find your nearest financial counsellor at fcawa.org or call the national debt helpline on 1800 007 007.

More information about FCAWA and available resources can be found on their website.
