Financial wellness is an important aspect of our general sense of well being

Financial wellness is achieved when we are able to cover our expenses with no worry, can absorb financial shock without much stress, and are on track to meet our financial goals. The only way to achieve financial health is through financial literacy. 

In a recent Member Sustainability survey, almost 90% of our members considered that improving the financial literacy of members is important, very important and even crucial. In response to this, we have prepared tips and tricks, "how to" guides and practical tools to help you unlock greater confidence and get you on the right financial path. Apart from this, please know that our Member Service Officers are always on hand to offer guidance on how our services can maximise your savings. Call us on 13 61 91 or email us at to discuss with one of our friendly Member Service Officers today.

Financial Guides: The "Take Control" series

The "Take Control" series is produced by the Credit Union Services Corporation and can assist you in understanding a range of topics from budgeting and saving to managing credit. 


Dollars & Cents: A practical guide to budgeting & saving

For some people, the word ‘budget’ can feel intimidating, especially when they think it means they can no longer enjoy the things they like or buy the things they want.

Budgeting does not have to be this way though! It can actually be both rewarding and empowering!


Golden Egg: A beginners guide to wealth creation

Credit Wise: A practical guide to getting & managing credit

The challenge with credit is managing it – it can seem easy to get, but can be difficult to repay.

It’s important to understand how credit works, if you can afford to borrow and what type of credit is right for you.
