About the National Financial Capability Strategy
When more Australians are in control of their financial lives, everyone benefits.
Collaboration across the government, business, community, education and research sectors to support strong financial capabilities in individuals, families and in communities makes a difference.
A range of factors influence the financial decisions people make every day. Life can be complicated and the types of decisions we need to make change over time. The way we manage our money today may not reflect our financial needs in the future.
The National Financial Capability Strategy recognises that long-term behavioural change cannot be achieved by a single program or a one-off intervention. We are committed to more deeply understanding the contexts in which people make decisions and the circumstances or situations in which they might need additional or specific support.
The more we work together and grow the network of resources to support people to better manage money day-to-day, make informed money decisions, and plan for the future, the closer we come to realising our vision, which is for all Australians to be in control of their financial lives.
