Initiative to help financial hardship

THOSE struggling to financially survive throughout the Inverell district now have a respite.

Legal Aid NSW congratulated the Australian Collectors and Debt Buyers Association (ACDBA) and Financial Counselling Australia on Monday for their commitment to the National Hardship Register.

The National Hardship Register – which has just been launched as a permanent national initiative – stops debt collection for eligible consumers in severe financial hardship.

“This initiative is a victory for people who will never be able to repay their debts,” said Julie Maron, lawyer from Legal Aid NSW and a representative on the committee overseeing the register.

“Our job is to assess their situation and tell them about legal options. We help them negotiate with utility providers, banks and other lenders especially when they are in severe financial hardship because of all their debts.”

“The National Hardship Register arose from initiatives by Legal Aid NSW and other community legal service providers and community groups.”
