LifeCare Financial Care provides free, personalised support to people facing financial challenges.
The Financial COACH program empowers you to take control of your finances.
A caring and committed Financial COACH mentor will tailor a program to meet your personal needs and will journey with you in a series of one-to-one sessions, providing you with tools, resources, support and practical assistance.
Depending on your situation, the mentoring usually runs for 10 sessions, followed by a period of informal support. You can:
Set financial goals and develop a savings plan to manage your finances.
Learn how to budget, save, manage spending and control your debt.
Receive support (such as dealing with creditors) and access direct financial assistance in some circumstances.
Focus on reducing your financial stress and improve your overall wellbeing.
Our Financial Care coaches are trained in helping people manage their finances. However, they are not financial planners, advisors or counsellors. They will not provide any advice or recommendations on financial products or services.
Our Financial Care Programs aim to help you take control of your finances in the long-term. However, we know that short-term needs come up, particularly when faced with an unexpected change in circumstances such as illness, loss of employment and unexpected expenses. Our Financial Assistance program can provide help to meet immediate needs and allow you to focus on your long-term goals.
Before receiving assistance you will need to have an assessment with one of our Financial Care workers who will discuss your specific circumstances. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
