Across Central Australia federal funding ends for the Money Management and Financial Counselling services on December 31st. Waltja has run a really successful Money Management Program since 2010, serving remote communities. Tangentyere has provided financial counselling services for town camp residents in Alice Springs. Other service providers are Anglicare, Australian Red Cross and Lutheran Community Care. In spite of lobbying and clear evidence of how valuable these programs are, all these programs will close. Tangentyere hasn’t given up (see their crowd funding appeal below) , and Waltja won’t give up either. We will keep finding ways to support financial literacy on remote communities.
