The Financial Independence Hub (FIH) is a free, confidential, personalised service supporting people impacted by financial abuse as a result of family violence to build their financial independence and achieve their goals through financial coaching, support and referrals into external partners and other services.
Service provision differs considerably from financial counselling. The service is not timebound and people can access the support and financial coaching for as long as required.
Since May 2021, FIH has expanded and now have a team situated in both Victoria and NSW, whilst supporting the whole of Australia.
