Let’s Talk Money

In Australia, we accept that if we work hard and do the right thing, we should be able to get ahead. With a good work ethic and a good attitude, opportunities are there for the taking.

This may be true for some, but for many newly arrived migrant or refugee women, they can face multiple blockers such as language, education, isolation and cultural expectations.  Without support many will never have the chance to enjoy work, social or community life in Australia – no matter how much they want to.

“The support of the Victorian Women’s Trust will allow WHIN to support migrant and refugee women who face barriers in accessing financial information in their first language, help to breakdown cultural barriers impeding their access to financial institutions, reduce their social isolation and promote the women’s independence and decision making.”

– Sandra Morris, Manager Health Promotion

Organisation: Women’s Health in the North (WHIN)
Project: Let’s Talk Money
Category: Small Grants
Amount: $10,000
Year: 2018-2019


WHIN works every day with migrant and refugee women, supporting them to find pathways to financial stability and better health outcomes for themselves and their families. WHN’s program Let’s Talk Money will teach financial literacy and money management skills and train women to share their knowledge with other women. Using a bilingual peer educator model, Let’s Talk Money will partner with community health organisations to recruit, train and support women from diverse cultural backgrounds to deliver practical financial literacy workshops to women in their own language and communities.
