The Financial & Consumer Rights Council

We provide resources and support to financial counsellors.

Financial Counsellors assist Victorians in financial difficulty
by providing information, support and advocacy.

Working within the community sector, their
services are free, independent and confidential.

Do You Need Free Financial Counselling?

Although we don't offer financial counselling ourselves, you can enter your postcode or suburb to the left to find your nearest financial counsellor. This works best with Google Chrome as your browser.

Problems with the map?

This map is hosted by MoneySmart on their website. Think of this as a mirror of their map, on our site.  FCRC can not actually update or alter the map, as it's not ours. 

Financial counselling services are free.
