The Saver Plus program has supported more than 240 low-income families from the cities of Wanneroo, Stirling and Swan to save more than $94,000.

The program requires participants to attend financial management workshops and save for a period of 1`0 months ” ANZ matches the savings up to $500.

When Hocking mother-of-two Vicki Scullion was nine months into the program, she had saved $400.

‘Since being on the program (as a result of attending the workshops) I have learnt a lot of helpful tips on saving money, planning and budgeting and also all the entitlements I have as a sole parent that I was unaware of,’ she said.

‘My daughter Ava (7) really wants to join the Australian Girls Choir and this money will definitely help’
