Demand for financial counselling is expected to rise dramatically as Western Australians grapple with the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Diane Hayes from the Financial Counselling Association of Western Australia says they are expecting demand for services to increase particularly when some of the Australian Government’s financial support and relief measures finish in September.
“The increased number of financial counsellors is a great initiative and we’re thankful for this funding. This will be important in helping to get new trainees on board to assist with the anticipated influx of new clients,” she says.
