Money Talks

Moneycare’s unique financial literacy education program, “You’re the Boss”, has been written in a readily understandable, conversational English format.

The program strives to portray key messages in an empowering and engaging manner. We work on the basis that workshop participants, if given the opportunity and information, can independently and competently manage their own financial affairs.

  • Sorting all those papers
  • Insurance that’s right for you

An important part of our service is workshop preparation, where we liaise with your organisation to tailor workshops to your needs, and assist with internal promotion.
