“Inbox Treats” is a new series designed to share those ‘treat’ emails we think might be useful and/or informative to you. To get the ball rolling, I’d like to share an email promoting a series of ASIC videos for Indigenous consumers that Lyn Harris, Secretary of the Financial Counselling Association of Queensland (FCAQ) sent through to us.
ASIC has a dedicated Indigenous Outreach Program (IOP) which aims to increase Indigenous Australians’ financial knowledge, and improve the financial services provided to them.
The IOP with 33 Creative produced two new MoneySmart videos to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people take control of their money and get help with their debts when they need it.
ASIC’s IOP spoke to people in Indigenous communities about the financial issues that affect them and people said they needed help sorting out their money problems and dealing with family pressure about money.
From this, ASIC created two videos which follow the journeys of Uncle Charlie and Lisa as they learn how to take control of their money to look after themselves and their families.
You can watch the videos on ASIC’s MoneySmart website:
