Financial Capabilities Project

The Financial Capabilities Project is a three-year pilot project by WIRE in partnership with Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand, supported by the Victorian Government.

This innovative project will explore women’s financial inequality, and barriers to building capabilities and inclusion. Through collaborative processes with women throughout Victoria and the financial and community sector, the project will design and deliver a co-designed program, building on WIRE & GSANZ best practice training and services. The co-design approach amplifies women’s voices, and allows for decision-making power in the design and delivery of the program.

The program is partnering with three community organisations which work with women who may face additional barriers and complexities, including:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women
  • Woman with disabilities
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse women

The program is expected to be designed and rolled out in 2020 and 2021 in Melbourne and regional Victoria.
