Financial Counselling & Financial Capability - Mornington Peninsula and Sydney/North Sydney & Hornsby

The Financial Wellbeing and Capability Activity (the Activity) is one of seven Activities under the Families and Communities Programme which aims to support families, improve children’s wellbeing and increase participation of vulnerable people in community life to enhance family and community functioning.

Through the Activity, the Australian Government, in partnership with civil society, provides support to vulnerable individuals, families and communities to improve their financial capability, resilience and lifetime wellbeing. The services included under the Activity provide crisis support, broad financial capability building services, financial counselling, and access to microfinance products.  Services are free, voluntary and confidential and are delivered by community and local government organisations.

This process is for the provision of Financial Counselling and Capability services.  Commonwealth Financial Counselling and Financial Capability services provide assistance to people in financial difficulty by helping them to address their financial problems, make informed choices and build longer-term capability to budget and manage their money.

This funding round is intended to support delivery of this service in the coverage areas of Mornington Peninsula and Sydney- North Sydney & Hornsby.
