What is Green Shoots?

Green Shoots provides assistance to individuals and families experiencing unexpected financial stress where other financial support options (such as no interest loans) are not feasible possibilities.

Green Shoots aims to offer opportunities to empower you to up-skill and make lifestyle changes which may create better conditions for you and your family. By supporting and motivating you to make changes to your current situation, Green Shoots and supporting services can help you make sustainable, positive, movements in the right direction.

Who is Green Shoots for?

Green Shoots supports people who are engaged with existing services (such as Financial Counsellors, Housing Support Workers, Mental Health Support Workers, Job Networks etc.) in order to reduce their current requirement for emergency relief and assess potential need for it in the future.

People seeking Green Shoots support must be working with a financial counsellor, or similar services such as housing support, to get back on their feet and demonstrate a willingness to continue working towards supported and sustainable solutions to their current challenges. You can find out more about financial counselling and how to book an appointment here.
