Can you ever be truly financially ready for a natural disaster? The Salvation Army Moneycare team explored this question when they created Planning For The Unplanned – a book filled with real stories from people who have survived natural disasters.

The team presented at a recent meeting of community organisations coordinated by the Hepburn Shire.

Read the personal stories  of people who have faced floods and fires and consider how you can get ready for a disaster.

You can attend one of Moneycare’s workshops or webinars to explore how the Moneycare financial coaches can assist you. Call or email them. To find out more, please contact 1800 722 363 or email

The Moneycare book will reveal things you are already doing well, and shine a light on things you have the power to change. Your discoveries will depend on your own circumstances as you consider what’s most important to you.
