Running from Sunday the 1st to Saturday the 7th of September, MoneySmart Week is a great opportunity for all Australians to reassess their financial situation.  MoneySmart Week is an independent, not-for-profit national initiative that promotes financial literacy by encouraging all Australians to make sound money decisions.  The Midland Information, Debt and Legal Advocacy Service Inc (MIDLAS) promotes this initiative, and believes that all Australians can “take simple steps to make a big difference to their finances.”  MoneySmart Week is a chance for you to conduct a “financial health check,” sort out any unexpected bills, and even take a look at those financial matters you had put into the ‘too hard basket.’

MoneySmart Week is designed to raise awareness of money smart management programs, tools and resources, and also provide a range of activities that can help improve your financial literacy.  Paul Clitheroe, from MoneySmart, believes that, “understanding money helps individuals, families, and businesses work towards their goals and secure their financial wellbeing, as well as managing financial stress should it arise.” MoneySmart Media
