The Queensland Financial Inclusion Plan The Queensland Financial Inclusion Plan (the plan) was launched by the Honourable Shannon Fentiman MP, Minister for Communities, Women and Youth, Minister for Child Safety and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence on 19 October 2016.
The plan sets out what we will do to assist financially vulnerable Queenslanders to ensure people are better prepared to respond to cost-of-living pressures and financially stressful life events. We also want to provide education and training to help people improve their future financial well-being.
The plan provides a whole-of-Queensland response to financial exclusion and hardship in Queensland, and outlines key initiatives undertaken by government and the non-government sector.
The Queensland Government has worked with representatives from the corporate, financial and community sectors to generate actions and deliver outcomes for financial resilience and inclusion across Queensland.
The plan is focused around three priority areas:
The plan will be reviewed and updated over time to reflect new initiatives and priorities. A report card outlining progress made and showcasing success stories will be released annually.
