Increasing Skills and Self Determination

of People with Disabilities

There is far too much ‘minder care’ rather than ‘quality of life care throughout the range of support services available to people with disabilities.

People with disabilities are often excluded from financial services and are frequently at risk of financial exploitation

Financial literacy helps people to make better financial decisions and act on them, given the opportunities available to them.

It is not just about increasing people’s knowledge of money matters and financial skills.  It is also about people’s attitudes.

Financial literacy is a combination of financial awareness, knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve individual financial wellbeing.

Financial literacy is about understanding money and finances and being able to confidently apply that knowledge to make effective financial decisions.
