The Financial Counselling services in Roebourne and Newman operate mainly as drop in services between Monday and Friday.
The majority of our financial counselling clients live in public housing provided by the WA Government. The balance of clients live in private rental or are buying their own homes.
Our client base includes high income individuals involved in the mining industry as well as those heavily reliant on Centrelink payments.
Most of our clients in all 4 centres are Aboriginal. The Financial Counselling service is vital to residents who often have limited literacy and require assistance to interact with telephone services and/or to respond to requests for information. Many clients don’t use internet and online services for dealing with government departments. A large percentage of our clients speak a language other than English at home.
Regardless of who you are, if you need to discuss financial hardship issues you are encountering, then please give us a call or complete our enquiry form and we will contact you.
If you would like to refer a client to one of our services please complete an External Referral Form and send to the nearest PCLS office.
