Midland Information Debt and Legal Advocacy Service (MIDLAS) will be attending the Annual Financial Counsellors’ Association of Western Australia (Inc) (FCAWA) http://www.financialcounsellors.org/ Conference from the 15th to 19th October 2012.
Conference themes this year include a new definition of the term ‘Financial Counsellor’ which is now enshrined in legislation providing clarity for workers within the field; a true cause for celebration. Another moment of reflection during this year’s gathering will be the abolition of 1300 and 1800 charges from mobile phones. For many distressed clients who are seeking assistance from service providers, calling 1300 & 1800 numbers can become very costly. This coupled with high amounts of debt and stress has lead to the Financial Counselling community seeking reform and change in charges from mobile phones.| | | Next → |
