Sorted in Schools
The CFFC is designing a Sorted in Schools programme to equip today's young people to make wise financial decisions throughout life. The programme is being co-created with schools, Core Education and the Ministry of Education, to make sure the content captivates students, fits with the current curriculum and is used in a consistent way by teachers. As part of the programme, teachers will be offered professional development opportunities that will boost confidence in their own financial capability as well as their ability to teach students about it. Ultimately, Sorted in Schools is about hooking in today’s diverse learners with a programme that will help them make better financial decisions, live the life they want and arrive at retirement in good financial shape.
Get Savvy on Scams
Get Savvy on Scams is CFFC’s programme to teach New Zealanders how to protect themselves from frauds and scams. With New Zealanders reporting losses of $2.1m as a result of frauds and scams between July – September 2017, we know that scams are on the increase. These fun, interactive workshops help New Zealanders to protect themselves, family members and clients from the latest scams and frauds. Delivered by CFFC’s resident expert, Bronwyn Groot, and promoted by MSD’s Office For Seniors, the workshops also provide advice on how to recognise a set-up and avoid a scam, and what to do if you discover you have been scammed.
The Little Black Book of Scams
The Little Black Book of Scams is CFFC's initiative to help New Zealanders become fraud-fighting superheroes. Designed to help protect kiwis, their families and their money from scammers and fraudsters. When completed, the booklet will be filled with tips and tricks on how individuals can protect themselves from the most common scams currently targeting New Zealanders.
Sorted Nga Whare
Te Ara Mauwhare, otherwise known as Pathway to Home Ownership, is a Te Puni Kōkiri (TPK)-funded programme that trials innovative approaches to help whānau achieve more housing independence. The ultimate aim is increased Māori home ownership rates. CFFC is working in collaborative partnership with TPK to implement Sorted Nga Whare - a financial capability – a financial capability programme. Together, the organisations have consulted with iwi to co-design the programme and tailor the content to meet the needs of participants. Sorted Nga Whare is delivered by a national network of Māori organisations who will provide facilitators trained by CFFC.
Know Your Rights
In a bid to educate more kiwi consumers, the Commerce Commission has translated their “Know Your rights” information into Te Reo Māori, Tongan, Samoan, Chinese, Korean and Indian. Charged with ensuring that consumers know their rights under the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act and the Fair Trading Act when borrowing money or buying goods or services, the Commerce Commission’s brochure highlights key rights under each Act.
