What is Financial Wellbeing?

Financial Wellbeing is about managing the money you make and planning for the future. It takes work and commitment, but you don’t have to do it alone.

It’s important to have a plan for how to manage finances during hardships or when faced with uncertainty, like the current COVID-19 pandemic. Financial wellbeing isn’t something that just happens. It’s about managing the money you make and planning for the future. Like our physical well-being, it takes work and commitment to keep fit – fiscally fit. But, you don’t have to do it alone.


Are you in control of your day-to-day finances?

Do you have a plan in place when a financial emergency happens?

Are you making the most of your income?
