After this year we are all looking forward to spending time with loved ones over Christmas and heading into the new year with high hopes that it won’t be a repeat of 2020!

However for some, COVID-19 has exacerbated what is already a very stressful time for families who are living on low and reduced incomes. The pressure to spend on Christmas and back to school items is intense, and many will simply not have enough to make ends meet.

BFFS and SFFS offer services that are designed to assist families who are experiencing financial hardship with food relief, material aid, help managing overdue utility bills, financial counselling and safe loans for essentials.

If you live in the Bendigo or Shepparton areas, please contact us for FREE, confidential support.
