“We’re encouraging people affected by the floods and who want financial advice, to call the referral service to ensure they get quality advice at a time when it is needed the most,” FPA CEO Mark Rantall said.

“It is important to the FPA and our members to be able to support flood victims and the best way for us to do this is by providing free, professional advice to help people get back on their feet at a time when many are struggling to cope with the loss of homes, personal possessions and probably their financial records.

“Our members have been quick to volunteer their services and we are pleased to be able to help Queenslanders in need.”
