Financial Counsellors work in community organisations, and their services are free, confidential, independent and non-conflicted. Financial Counsellors do not accept fees or commissions and are not financial planners, financial advisers, debt agreement or debt management firms or companies that offer budget services.
HOW DO I APPLY TO JOIN FCAN?
People wishing to join FCAN as a financial counsellor need to complete the Diploma of Financial Counselling and meet the ongoing obligations of being a member of FCAN. Or if you work in the sector you may be eligible to join as an Affiliate member or Credit Advocate member.
