The Financial Protections Service is provided to middle-aged Queenslanders who are approaching retirement and undertaking financial decision making for later life.

The service facilitates access to and uptake of free and independent financial information and advice with a particular focus on improving financial resilience. Service partners will also undertake screening and referral for financial abuse.

There are ten participating Seniors Legal and Support Service (SLASS) and Elder Abuse Prevention and Support Service (EAPSS) organisations across Queensland who deliver the Financial Protections Service. SLASS and EAPSS are experts in providing legal, social work, financial counselling and mediation services to older Queenslanders. Links to these organisations can be found at the bottom of this page.

The Financial Protections Service has partnered with the National Seniors Financial Information Desk, an independent financial information service funded by National Seniors that aims to improve retirement information available to older Australians. The service was developed in consultation with the Financial Counsellors’ Association of Queensland.

The Financial Protections Service was co-designed by Caxton Legal Centre and the Townsville Community Legal Service and is funded by the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors. The service guides, practice manual and training webinars were co-authored and developed by Bill Mitchell (Principal Solicitor, Townsville Community Law) and Melody Valentine (Solicitor, Caxton Legal Centre).

Community Legal Centres Queensland wants to ensure that community legal centre (CLC) workers and others accessing this website feel safe, and are able to access appropriate and timely help and support.

CLCs provide important support and assistance to people who have experienced violence and trauma, and CLC workers and volunteers necessarily undertake training and reading in these areas as part of their professional development requirements.

As such, some of the training materials and webinars on this website may be disturbing, upsetting or trigger strong/negative emotions for victims and survivors of violence and trauma, and others.

Even if you have not directly experienced trauma, it is important to be aware of the effects that working with clients who have experienced trauma can have on your own emotional and mental wellbeing (this is known as vicarious trauma).

Community Legal Centres Queensland respects your autonomy. If you feel triggered or upset by any of the content or materials provided here, we would encourage you to use your discretion as to whether you should continue reading, watching or listening to the material.

You may also wish to access more information and resources, as well as professional support or advice from one of the free and confidential organisations listed below.
