About the forum
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.
