Several organisations in South Australia operate to assist refugees and migrants and can extend to International students and temporary visa holders, providing help in learning new financial systems and assisting with basic needs and support such as food through an Emergency Relief service.
These organisations have access to Financial Counselling and caseworkers to help individuals negotiate with utility companies, government departments. It is expected that these organisation will also refer to other community services as appropriate.
The Australian Refugee Association and the Australian Migrant Resource Centres are located in Adelaide and across many parts of South Australia.
International students can approach financial counselling services within the SA Universities provided by student services to access help.
Please refer to each location for more information about services offered.
