Mallee Family Care provide a range of Financial Counselling and capability services for vulnerable and disadvantaged community members, including people experiencing family violence, people with disabilities, and people on low incomes. The Financial Counselling Program provides the following services to clients with financial disadvantage: direct casework, individual and/or group advocacy and negotiation; referral; community education and development.  Financial counselling aims to result in a client’s financial problems being partially or fully resolved; a client being able to make informed decisions on the best course of action to resolve their financial difficulties; and or a client gaining an improved ability to manage their financial affairs in the future. Our financial counsellors can be based in Mildura or Swan Hill and deliver regular outreach services to the northern and southern Mallee Regions, as well as working directly with Domestic Violence services.

The Financial Counsellor will work as part of the MFC-CLC Team to provide wrap-around support to clients of the Centre. The Financial Counsellor is expected to work closely with the CLC team, the Leadership and staff to support the development and review of the MFC-CLC Service Delivery model which is based on a health justice framework to provide holistic and integrated service.
