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