Local MP Annabelle Cleeland has met with the Sustaining Economic Empowerment and Dignity for Women (SEED) Project team at 47a Anglesey St, Seymour to discuss the free services they offer to the Seymour region through a new Women’s Financial Wellbeing Hub.
Ms Cleeland said Project Coordinator, Lexi Economou, and her team have put together an important range of programs for the community.
“Seymour is home to a broad demographic of people. These services are accessible and available to women from across the region,” Ms Cleeland said.
“The one-on-one mentoring can help people with anything from writing a resume to employment advice and banking basics.”
Ms Cleeland said that financial literacy and empowerment has become more important than ever in the current economic environment.
“We’re living through a cost-of-living crisis and inflation is really stretching family budgets in Seymour,” Ms Cleeland said.
“The SEED Project is a great initiative from the Brotherhood of St. Laurence.
“It’s a no judgement, supportive project aimed at helping empower women in Seymour.
“I encourage people to get in touch with the SEED Project team. They provide confidential support and are committed to improving financial outcomes for women and families in the region.”
The Women’s Financial Wellbeing Hub is open 9-5 Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with the SEED Project team available to be contacted on 0482188099 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
