WIRE’s Financial Wellbeing Coaching

Every day, we make financial choices that can affect our emotional and mental wellbeing. At WIRE, we recognise that these choices are reflective of our systems and services available impacting on your choices, which can sometimes feel overwhelming or complicated. WIRE’s Financial Wellbeing coaching program aims to help you navigate the complex world of money with more confidence by acknowledging both systemic issues and individual capacity. Our coaching focuses on all aspects of money, not just on what you earn, save, or spend. 

At WIRE, we have 15 years’ experience of working with women and gender diverse people’s build their financial capabilities. We have been able to strengthen our knowledge from our projects, including SARA, Women + Money, Gender Disaster and Financial Wellbeing, Financial Self Care and Intersectional Financial Wellbeing. Throughout this time, we have come to recognise the significant impacts that financial wellbeing and literacy can have on multiple facets of life, including mental, emotional, physical, and social health. Building confidence with finances, and gaining financial wellbeing and security can be a liberating experience that prepares you for a positive future with money.   

What is financial wellbeing?  

As defined by the Centre for Social Impact, financial wellbeing can be described as the state in which a person: 

  • Can meet expenses with some money left over; 
  • Is in control of their finances; 
  • Feels financially secure, now and in the future.  

Some of the strongest factors that influence financial wellbeing are financial capability, financial inclusion, social capital, and economic recourses (especially income).
