The Cafs Financial Counselling team is based in Ballarat, although it provides outreach services to Ararat, Daylesford, Bacchus Marsh and also two prisons in the region. 

Our Financial Counselling provides individual support to people who find themselves in financial difficulty through unresolved debt. The team has strong links with utility providers and local government to ensure that community members are provided with support to overcome their financial difficulties. 

In 2017-18 the Cafs Financial Counselling team provided counselling, support and advice to over 1500 people within the community.
