The Charter of Affordability is a partnership between government and key organisations that many people deal with on a regular basis such as banks, energy companies, local government, and SA Water. All these services impact on the household budget.
Through the Charter, each organisation has agreed to six guiding principles that ensure people in financial hardship are treated with respect and compassion, and can access information to help them make important decisions. Each organisation has completed a fact sheet that provides information on financial assistance and a contact person. The attached document below provides more information on the hardship policies made available by the signatories listed below.
