The news and necessary course of action from the Australian Government has no doubt devastated you all.
Giselle and I from Club Safe would like to reiterate to you all that we are still around at present to take your calls (venting is ok), our role and mission has always been to be a support mechanism for you and this will continue for as long as we are allowed.
Obviously as the changes came into fruition so quickly, no one has been given any time to prepare for the loss in wages, and for many this will cause much angst.
Club Safe has put together a list of free services both financial and therapeutic who have all been queued on the current situation and are willing and waiting to help you through this difficult time.
Although many of our essential utility services, insurance companies etc are being very helpful and cooperative, there are others who will likely be a little more difficult.
Financial Counsellors are able to advocate for you with creditors to allow time for them to work with you, developing a plan and offering options which are affordable for your budget, giving you some breathing space while we all endure this unprecedented time.
We wish you all the very best and look forward to reuniting with you all on the other side.
Please take care, stay safe, stay in touch with your colleagues and reach out if you need to, we are all in this together.
Please contact your Club Safe Officer at any time if you have any queries or concerns.
