  • Friday 30 September 2011

With family finances tighter than ever Sunshine Coast libraries are offering free financial planning and advice sessions.

Sunshine Coast Council, Manager Library and Gallery Services Ross Duncan, said that the sessions will be presented by Greg Barrie from Centrelink.

"The libraries are hosting this event with Centrelink in order to provide people with information to help them manage their money," Mr Duncan said.

"It’s a tough time for a lot of people out there and it is timely for libraries to help connect people with information about financial planning.

"Financial advice helps people make decisions about their money in relation to their financial situation and their objectives.

"Greg Barrie will explain the financial planning process and how people can choose a financial planner.

"There will also be information about investment risks, fees and charges and what must be included in a financial plan."

This event will fill quickly and bookings are essential on www.library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ or contact your local library.
