Welcome to the FCVic Conference 2021

Financial Counselling Victoria invites you to join us at the FCVic Conference 2021.

Conveniently located at the Pullman on the Park in Melbourne, the conference will take place 13-15 October 2021.  

This three-day event aims to reconnect the Victorian Financial Counselling sector as we explore best practice pathways to collaborate with clients and industry across all sectors to support, educate and empower those doing it tough. Following a 12-month hiatus and given the significant health and economic turmoil we experienced during 2020, we have adopted a revised conference theme of ‘Recovery. Resilience. Reconnection'.  

We are renewing the conference program to ensure currency in the trending themes.  The FCVic Conference is the premier financial counselling event in Victoria and over the course of three days will:

  • Deliver a program that is topical, engaging and highly interactive (visit the Program page for more information)
  • Engage expert speakers and session facilitators to build on current knowledge bases and extend thinking
  • Provide the platform to unite our growing membership base and support our new student members
  • Host a large number of exhibitors from all corners of the sector to ensure those critical coalface discussions and cross-sector ‘think-tank’ type conversations are given voice, and
  • Enjoy informal networking events as we reconnect and celebrate our sector champions

The Conference this year will be an opportunity to continue developing financial counselling as a profession which aims, ultimately, to empower people who are in hardship.

With significant unemployment and increasing poverty due to loss of the Jobseeker COVID supplement, we need to start thinking about people’s financial situations in public health terms. Financial public health means recognising that poverty, hardship and vulnerability affect individuals, families and communities and have to be seen as things that affect us all.

Our collective interest is best served by providing strong non-judgemental support to those in hardship, and by developing systems that reduce and eliminate people’s exposure to financial hardship and poverty. 

The FCVic Team looks forward to your company at the Pullman on the Park in Melbourne, 13-15 October.
