Northern Territory Money Management Services

Services to help Indigenous people

Help is available for people on low incomes who are struggling to pay their bills and would like tips on improving their shopping budgeting, banking, Basics Card or making money last until pay day.

We offer a range of services:

  • Emergency relief
  • Financial literacy workshops
  • Individual mentoring and support in relation to banking and money issues

Services are offered from the Town Camps in Alice Springs and to 13 remote communities in the MacDonnell Shire:

  • Areyonga
  • Docker River
  • Finke
  • Haasts Bluff
  • Hermannsburg
  • Imanpa
  • Kings Canyon
  • Kintore
  • Mutitjulu
  • Papunya
  • Santa Teresa
  • Tjuwanpa
  • Wallace Rockhole

We hold free Money Management Sessions where people can learn about budgeting, working with banks, internet and phone banking, and obtaining credit and loans. These sessions can help people develop new skills so that they can manage their own money, improve their savings patterns and avoid borrowing 'traps'.
