Improved understanding of rights
SECL referred Mischa to legal services to support her with the traffic fines incurred in her name, which were revoked by the court. In addition, a financial counsellor helped Mischa liaise with the bank to have her name removed from the car loan, so she would not be responsible for future fines.
Improved financial capability
Improved pathways to employment
SECL supported Mischa in considering her employment options. As a result, she is undertaking further study to become a primary school teacher. This has created clear goals and a pathway for Mishca to build financial independence in the future.
SECL’s family violence financial counselling program is supported by the Victorian Government.
