Raising Financially Savvy Daughters

Working to identify and develop tools to assist and support mothers to have the confidence to teach and coach their daughters to become financially savvy young women.  The Raising Financially Savvy Working Group aims to equip mothers with the tools and confidence they need to be positive role models and encourage their daughters to learn the basic skills of financial management as they embark on their own financial journeys.  Becoming financially savvy young women will help secure their future financial freedom.

Understanding Financial Basics Program

The initial Raising Financially Savvy Daughters program, Understanding Financial Basics, aims to highlight the essentials needed to manage your own finances.  With the right information, we believe you and your daughter will be equipped to make better choices with how you manage your money.  The program comprises a set of four different modules, each presented by expert lecturers, which you can access at your leisure.  At the end of the program, you should have greater confidence in managing your money or know what areas you would to learn more about.  The details of each module are set out below.


The program targets participants who are unsure of, or who have never been taught the basics of money management.  No prior knowledge required!
