Financial Counselling

The financial counselling service is provided free of charge and is available to all City of Melville residents. The financial counselling service is strictly confidential.

A financial counsellor can:

  • help those at financial risk make informed decisions regarding their financial problems and so to gain economic control over their lives
  • give you information about bankruptcy, rules and laws relating to bills and debts
  • tell you what Government assistance may be available
