Support for unemployed families
Families experiencing long term unemployment or retrenchment may be eligible for support through Building Family Opportunities (BFO).
BFO helps retrenched workers and their families in northern, southern and western Adelaide, and Port Augusta, Port Pirie and Whyalla. If you have dependents under 24 years of age and you’ve been retrenched, or are facing retrenchment, or have been unemployed and receiving income support for more than 12 months, BFO services can help.
A BFO case manager will assist you and other members of your family to improve your skills, find a job and connect you to support services.
