Pro Bono Financial Advice Network

The Pro Bono Financial Advice Network (PFAN) is an industry wide collaboration that connects financial advisers willing to provide Pro Bono advice to Australians in times of financial hardship, specifically personal health crisis. 

Giving back to the community is a signpost for professionalism,

if you are interested in providing Pro Bono advice please contact:

Through the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network, advisers will work with people with MS and other PND in Queensland to improve their understanding of financial issues and to help give them peace of mind about their financial future. Diagnosis of MS or another progressive neurological disease (PND), or a sudden worsening of symptoms can be a stressful time both emotionally and financially, which is why this service is so important.

MS Research Australia Patron Simon McKeon AO is a former AMP Chairperson, Monash University Chancellor, philanthropist and sportsman and has kindly helped the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network to produce this video about Pro Bono Financial Advice.



Currently the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network is collaborating with MS Queensland, MS AustraliaNational Disability Services, and Wayside Chapel.
