A new video celebrating the legacy of Jan Pentland was launched at the annual Financial Counselling Australia (FCA) conference in Adelaide earlier this month. Jan Pentland’s involvement and commitment to financial counselling and to helping low income and vulnerable consumers has continued through the Jan Pentland Foundation, established in her honour. The video produced by ICAN Media with the assistance of FCA and the Financial and Consumer Rights Council (FCRC), promotes the success of the Jan Pentland Foundation’s scholarship program and introduces the viewer to previous recipients and their work across Victoria.
The Foundation provides financial assistance, enabling people to study financial counselling or a related discipline. The production involved interviewing past scholarship winners from both metropolitan and regional Victoria. ICAN CEO/ Video Producer Aaron Davis said, “the commitment and professionalism of past scholarship winners really shone through in the interviews conducted. As perfectly summed up by one interviewee: ‘Jan would be really proud of what’s going on now in the industry’.”
The Jan Pentland Foundation needs your support to build on her legacy and provide opportunities to up and coming financial counsellors so they can better assist others. If you’d like to donate to the Jan Pentland Foundation, please go to http://janpentlandfoundation.org/donations.html.
