FINANCIAL LITERACY

Financial literacy

COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to the impacts of the COVID-19, we will not be running our financial literacy session on campus and are exploring options to run programs online.

For example, the SOS team is currently working on developing Australia's first financial information chatbot to provide speedy tailored information to young Australians in need of financial information.

 

We are currently looking for:

  • Volunteers keen to work on developing the program,

  • Financial questions you might have to test the program, and

  • Members who want to gain more financial literacy skills or who want free tailored financial information.

 

If you are interested in any of these things, please email Jeremy at president@squareone.org.au

Being aware of your rights as a tenant is vital to ensuring that you get the most out of your property. However, it can be difficult identifying when and how you can seek help from your landlord. We want to help you find the answers to all your rental issues!

NSW Fair Training will be running a presentation on rental rights, covering:
1. Starting and ending tenancies
2. Common rental rights
3. Bonds

There will also be plenty of time for you to ask individual questions relating to your own rental issues to the NSW Fair Trading representatives.
