The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) will launch a pro bono support program for members wanting to volunteer their time to help Australians impacted by the bushfires rebuild financially.
In an announcement, the FPA said many Australians would need to rebuild their lives and for money it would include significant financial pressures.
FPA chief executive, Dante De Gori, said: “The FPA community supported those who suffered in the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires and we want to offer our support again.
“Our members have lifelong relationships with some of the people impacted by the bushfires. We will be offering whatever aid we can to help rebuild and recover.”
FPA members directly impacted by the bushfires could also access free and confidentially support through FPA Wellbeing. It said there was also a critical incident and major events resource kit available on how to support members and others impacted.
Members interested in the pro bono program should contact the FPA on [email protected].
