Financial Counsellors to help with Debt

23rd July, 2013No Comments

At Debt Rescue, we speak to hundreds of Aussies each week who are struggling with their finances. We pride ourselves in providing holistic and suitable debt relief to people struggling with their debts. Sometimes the best thing we can do is refer people to free financial counsellors in their state to ensure they get sound financial advice and assistance to curb their growing debt.

To assist people like you in their journey to financial freedom, we have put together a list of free financial Counsellors in each State and Territory. Each of these providers will be able to advise you on the best way to move forward and plan your way out of debt. They can inform you of government grants, loan schemes and assistance available to you to help improve your situation. They can also refer you to other financial services, such as budgeting experts and accountants who might be able to help you out of debt or offer you advice.

If your debts are out of control and you are looking at declaring bankruptcy, Debt Rescue may be able to assist you. We can often help our clients get out of debt without having to declare bankruptcy. As well as referring our clients to other financial counsellors, we can help you refinance, consolidate your debt, enter an informal debt agreement or enter a Part 9 Debt Agreement to avoid gong bankrupt. Debt help is available to those who need it in Australia.
