“I am now in better control of my bills, am debt free, and am no longer ruled by financial stress.”
LifeCare Financial Care provides free, personalised support to people facing financial challenges.
Through our B-Empowered financial coaching program, we help you manage your financial situation better. Our caring and committed financial care coaches will journey with you in a series of one-to-one sessions, providing you with tools, resources, support and practical assistance. You will have an initial assessment with a financial care coach who will tailor the coaching to meet your personal needs. Depending on your situation, the coaching usually runs for 10 sessions, follow by a period of informal support.
Through financial coaching, you can:
- Set Goals

Learn how to budget, save, manage spending and control your debt.
- Be Supported
Receive support (such as dealing with creditors) and access direct financial assistance in some circumstances.
- Improve Wellbeing

Our financial care coaches are trained in helping people manage their finances. However, they are not financial planners, advisors or counsellors. They will not provide any advice or recommendations on financial products or services.
Our financial coaching is a free service by appointment only. Evening appointments are available.
