MoneyMinded is Australia's largest adult financial education program developed to help people build their financial skills, knowledge and confidence.
Participant training is delivered to groups of participants in the community. This particular training focuses on the key learning needs using the MoneyMinded materials combined with practical activities to help engage the client’s learning ability. The workshops ensure all learning styles are met so each client can increase their knowledge and understanding within a comfortable training environment.
The MoneyMinded Basics training pack is a pre-developed pack put together covering four main popular topics, each topic taking about 2.5 hours to complete. Community workers may choose to use all of these topics or only some, depending on the needs of individual clients. Each participant will receive a take-home workbook that is used within the workshop so they can refer back to their personal notes. The four workshop sessions are Planning and Budgeting, Saving and Spending, Everyday Banking and Planning for the Future.

Partners and history
MoneyMinded was developed by ANZ following its ANZ Survey of Adult Financial Literacy in Australia (2003), which identified a strong link between socio-economic status and financial literacy levels.
The program was created by the Centre for Learning Innovation in the New South Wales Department of Education and Training with contributions from an advisory committee, which included representatives from the Australian Financial Counselling and Credit Reform Association (now Financial Counsellors Australia), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and ANZ. MoneyMinded is free from any ANZ branding and promotion of products.

About powers of attorney
Powers of attorney are legal documents that let someone appoint another person who can make decisions for them or support them to make and give effect to their own decisions. Powers of attorney give choice and control.
Enduring powers of attorney are a type of power of attorney. They ‘endure’ (continue) even when the person who made them is unable to make their own decisions about matters. Anyone can experience an accident or illness that affects their ability to make decisions. For this reason, the African Australian Welfare Bureau (AAWB) recommends everyone over the age of 18 years consider making enduring powers of attorney. AAWB also provides advice for people appointed under powers of attorney so they can understand their role and carry out their duties according to the law.
The supportive attorney appointment is another type of power of attorney. Supportive attorney appointments are ways a person can be supported to make decisions. Supportive attorney appointments are designed to promote the right of people with disabilities to make their own decisions about things that affect them.
