The CBAA has launched a new radio series dedicated to supporting consumers during the current pandemic.

The Consumer Coach: Your Pandemic Financial Survival Guide has been produced in partnership with the Ecstra Foundation, and is aimed at equipping Australian consumers with the support, advice, and access to resources they need to make financial decisions during the pandemic. 
CEO of Ecstra Foundation, Caroline Stewart, is focused on supporting local communities along the road to economic recovery. “This show offers impartial, practical help to consumers to navigate their way through stressful money issues. Ecstra applauds the Consumer Coach as it explores personal stories of financial resilience in the face of economic adversity during COVID 19.  Community radio is an important conduit of information Australians can trust to help build their financial wellbeing.”

Each episode of the ten-part series will focus on a different area of financial interest. Episode 1 centres around unemployment, exploring themes like ‘You’ve lost your job – what happens now?’ and how to navigate the various government agencies to access financial assistance.
Hosted by Walkley award-winning writer, editor and broadcaster, Jeff Sparrow, listeners will hear advice from financial experts, insights from those hardest hit, and representatives from specialist agencies and volunteer-run services like the Australian Unemployed Workers Union.  Listen to the first episode below.
