Sunshine Coast Libraries are hosting free sessions aimed at helping members of our community move through the various phases of their lives with financial independence.

The Manage your Money sessions conducted by Centrelink's Financial Information Service Officer, Greg Barrie will demonstrate how a few simple habits can put you in charge of your financial position. 

The sessions will cover a range of topics from reducing debt to budgeting and planning for the future to superannuation, asset protection and financial counselling services.

Manger Learning Communities, Ross Duncan said everyone's financial control is governed by what they spend, regardless of what they earn. 

"Sadly, Australia has the highest household debt to disposable income ratio in the world," Mr Duncan said.

"The global financial crisis saw Australian households reign in their debt temporarily but rising property prices led to larger loans. With the recent natural disasters in this country and crisis in Egypt and Libya, cost of living prices are also expected to soar."

"These Manage your Money sessions will provide a series of simple guidelines to help put you back in the driving seat to control your everyday finances."

The 75 minute sessions are free and with places filling fast, bookings are essential.  More information is available at the Sunshine Coast Libraries website.
