Reaching disadvantaged and vulnerable communities is important to us. It is important because staying connected by phone or internet can be the help someone needs to move forward.
We look for ways to reach people, small businesses, and communities who need our help by finding and connecting with community organisations. We build relationships with organisations who have built trust with the communities they support.
Working directly with community organisations helps remove barriers. It means we can connect through trusted community service providers. A familiar face, place or event can make all the difference in introducing our service so we can help. And so that the person we are helping feels safe.
Disadvantaged and vulnerable communities we work with include:
- First Nations people
- People at risk from domestic and financial abuse or hardship
- Culturally and linguistically diverse people
- People with disabilities and additional needs
- Young and older people
Our outreach activities include:
- Attending in-person events such as Yabun festival, Sisters Day Out and Bring Your Bills days
- Sponsoring conferences and providing keynote speakers for events such as Financial Counselling conferences at both a state and national level
- Hosting in-person and online education and information sessions through community webinars
- Participating in interviews with specialist media outlets.
You can order a range of informative materials from us such as posters, brochures, and flyers. View the complete suite of materials we have available to order.
