Budget Support Volunteer
The Emergency Assistance Program provides material and financial assistance to disadvantaged households in South Australia. Due to the constantly rising cost of living, more families and individuals are seeking support as they find themselves unable to make ends meet. As the Emergency Assistance programs heavily relies on limited funding and donations, it offers assistance two times per calendar year. However, households requiring further assistance are referred to the Budget Counselling Service.
The Budget Counselling program is designed to assess the financial situation of households in order to determine the main financial pressures and explore ways to address them. Depending on the complexity of the issues examined, referrals are provided to appropriate programs and more Emergency Assistance can be provided.
Volunteers involved in the Budget Counselling program receive ongoing training and support. The Budget Counselling team works closely with the Emergency Assistance team and Financial Counselling team.
We are currently looking for volunteers for our site at Christies Beach – Outer Southern Hub (Monday to Friday 9am to 12pm) – at 111 Beach Road, CHRISTIES BEACH.
This volunteering opportunity is ideal for people looking for experience in microfinance, social work and community services.
