Financial exclusion causes and compounds financial disadvantage. It can lead to poverty and homelessness, amplified mental health problems, continued welfare dependence, remaining in a violent relationship, poorer educational outcomes for children and increased law breaking or criminal offences.
To address the negative consequences of financial exclusion to individual people, their communities and our economy, we invite you to our Financial Inclusion Forum for 2019, presented in partnership with Northern Rivers Community Gateway and the Centre For Social Impact.
The forum will convene a diverse audience of stakeholders concerned with financial inclusion and financial resilience. It will focus and expand conversation around two key building blocks of financial resilience – social capital and economic resources.

To help us navigate these topics, our guest speakers include:
In addition to our guest speakers, the forum will deliver two dedicated workshops about social capital and economic resources. These workshops aim to extend our knowledge and understanding of financial exclusion, identify innovative solutions and discuss how these solutions can be applied as a cross-sector approach.
This is also a great opportunity to meet, connect and reconnect with the people invested in a future of financial inclusion and resilience. We will strengthen our own connections, share stories, experiences and best practices.
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
The Financial Inclusion Forum 2019 is a prelude to the Financial Inclusion Conference IV – Roads To Resilience, to be held in Sydney 18 and 19 of March 2020 in Sydney.
