Even though she has now completed the Saver Plus program, Michelle has been able to keep saving and feels she has more confidence and control over her money.
“It has definitely encouraged me to save, to spend less on little things, though sometimes it is nice to spoil yourself with a coffee, and to think big with financial goals. It has shown me that I can go on a holiday or buy big things, it just takes a little time to save for them, and as long as you keep your goals in mind, YOU CAN DO IT!”
Saver Plus is delivered in 60 communities across Australia. Participants must have a Centrelink healthcare or pensioner concession card, a child at school or be attending vocational education themselves, and regular household income from paid employment.
