Diversity and Inclusion
We welcome people of any faith, culture, race, gender identity and sexual orientation, age, and disability. Please contact us for support and advice. We recognise that discrimination and poor treatment exists in society and treat all our clients with respect. We want to help empower everyone to improve their financial or insurance situation.
If you can’t use the phone or need to contact us out of hours
We understand that not everyone can use telephone services easily. It is still possible for you to get help. If you can’t access telephone advice services, the National Debt Helpline provides an online Chat service which is run by financial counsellors. The live Chat service is available 9:00 am to 8.00 pm weekdays. Please visit the NDH website to use the Chat feature.
If you want legal advice but can’t call Financial Rights within hours, please send an enquiry form. We try to respond within 2 weeks, but it may take longer during busy times.
Translating and Interpreting Service
When you call, tell us what language you speak. We will organise a phone interpreter for you. Visit our Help in your Language page.
Financial Rights uses the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) to help non-English speaking callers and hearing impaired callers. TIS National has access to over 2,700 contracted interpreters across Australia speaking more than 150 languages and dialects.
