The Kit includes:
- The my money organiser: a safe and handy place to put your financial information
- The my money conversations: your guide to talking about money and where to find more information
- A quick checklist to help organise your financial life.
When it comes to money, a good place to start is looking at your current financial situation. The first three steps of this Kit are about understanding your current relationship with money (and what money has meant to you throughout your life) and to start gathering information about your finances.
Once you have identified your current financial situation, the next step is to find out the things you don’t know. This step to making a change and feeling more confident about working towards your financial goals may highlights gaps in your knowledge.
Along the way, you will identify areas which need improvement or prioritisation, as well as areas where you are already in control or succeeding.
About the launch
We are thrilled to be able to launch this kit, alongside Minister Gabrielle Williams whose ministries include the Prevention of Family Violence, Women and Youth. We hope to share the My Money kit with you over morning tea, where you will get the chance to hear from speakers including Minister Williams and one of the project participants, and learn more about the kit and WIRE’s work in financial capability, especially for women, gender diverse and non-binary people over 50
Morning tea, tea, coffee and juices will be catered by Kinfolk and will include vegan options.
Accessibility: Limited Wheelchair accessibility (wheelchair access into the building from the Godfrey Lane entrance, narrow lift door opening of 65cm), Toilets on ground floor, including Male, female and all gender accessible toilet. There will be no dedicated quiet space. We will use a microphone for all speeches and we may be employing an ASL interpreter.
The Finance over 50 Workshops and the My Money Conversation Kit were made possible through the support of the Victorian Government.
