Today marks a significant milestone as the Federal Government announces a lasting resolution regarding the collapse of ACBF/Youpla Funeral Funds. This acknowledgement of the wrongdoing is a crucial step forward. This important outcome follows a three-year journey filled with hard work and extensive advocacy by champions across Australia. At Broome CIRCLE, our senior Financial Counsellor, Veronica Johnson, advocated tirelessly for our affected First Nations clients, who came and celebrated this momentous occasion with us at CIRCLE House today.
