Financial literacy and wellbeing
We develop financial literacy information resources for migrant and refugee women to support our capacity to manage finances.
Financial literacy refers to our understanding, competency and responsibility regarding finances and is an important building block of financial wellbeing. Improving our financial literacy skills helps us to work through difficult times and to find help if we need it.
The information resources cover the following key financial literacy skills:
- Understanding what money is, its value, and how it is used.
- Understanding basic financial services and products, how and when to access them.
- Understanding how to make informed decisions about finances and financial products.
- Understanding our financial rights and responsibilities as consumers, and what to do if something goes wrong.
These resources are currently being developed and will be available here soon.
