why do we need financial literacy?
financial literacy health check
The ballooning cost of living has had a disproportionate impact on low-income households, 77% of whom are financially vulnerable or extremely financially vulnerable.
Research also tells us that when people feel stressed about money or overwhelmed by their financial situation, this stress impacts other areas of their life. It can negatively impact their mental health, physical health, family relationships, and their ability to work.
Financial education and proper planning can reduce this stress and put you on the right path to financial security.
