Saving and managing money
Financial security is essential to building a good life, but people on low incomes face more barriers to achieving it.
The SEED Project (Sustaining Economic Empowerment and Dignity for Women) will demonstrate how working at a local to national level can disrupt narratives of disadvantage and create opportunities.
Improving money management
People living in poverty have fewer financial and social resources and don't always have the means to live well. It is a struggle to pay for education costs, ‘big ticket’ household items like efficient hot-water systems and a family’s cost of living expenses.
It’s also harder to plan for unexpected life events such as illness or being made redundant.
With assistance to save and improve ‘money management’ knowledge and skills, our programs put participants in a better position to control household budgets, make confident and knowledgeable choices about financial products and services and plan for the future.
BSL also advocates for affordable and fair financial services.
WESSI’s Financial Inclusion evidence-based programs work with people on lower-incomes to enhance their economic security and financial wellbeing.
Participants of our programs feel more empowered, have better control of their finances and confident in making informed decisions.
We work collaboratively to build capacity, create a greater sense of connection and economic dignity, while being a trusted voice for systemic change.
