Money Talks for Better Ageing is led by Australian Multicultural Community Services in partnership with Financial Counselling Victoria and Seniors Rights Victoria. The project partners acknowledge the support of the Ecstra Foundation.
Money Talks for Better Ageing aims to strengthen the financial wellbeing of seniors from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD). The program provides fair access to information and resources about financial abuse for seniors to make informed financial decisions, either by themselves or with family or carers.
In a survey, one participant said, “Financial counselling for seniors is vital and I believe this initiative covered the importance of financial counsellors when seeking financial advice.”
In partnership with Seniors Rights Victoria, Financial Counselling Victoria and local financial counsellors, the project successfully completed two co-design online workshops with over 100 CALD seniors from metropolitan Melbourne.
Another participant said, “It was an interesting session. I can now educate myself on various forms of elder financial abuse.”
