Exploring Loans and Credit Reports workshops

To assist our customers through this challenging time we are excited to bring you this free online workshop focused on Exploring Loans and Credit Reports to get you ready for home ownership.

Please note that these workshops are open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people only.

Why attend?

One in three people find managing their money overwhelming and stressful. With the added burden of dealing with the cost of living crisis, many customers may resort to making financial decisions that could impact their future. Our workshops are designed to provide you with information and tools which will empower you to navigate your way through money challenges and help you make financial decisions to take back control of your money.

“The skills and knowledge can be applied not just against the home loan, but any financial decision.” - Workshop participant
