The Salvation Army

Financial problems can affect anyone, anywhere, at any time. With debt building up, paying your rent or even buying food for your family can feel overwhelming.

Money troubles may leave people feeling lonely, embarrassed and isolated. If your financial situation gives you more of an icy shiver than a warm sense of safety, help is at hand. There are many services to help you get back on your feet. Financial counselling and coaching is available as well as a no interest loan scheme (NILS).

Emergency relief team can be reached at 1300 371 288 for ACT, NSW or QLD. In NT, SA, TAS, VIC or WA call or visit your nearest Salvos centre.
