National Carers Week 2021: Planning for your Financial Future

Being responsible for another person’s needs may have an impact on carers’ finances.

In this session, Lali Wiratunga, National Manager of Westpac’s Financial Education specialists, the Davidson Institute will help carers learn how to:

  • develop a plan that reflects relevant goals for your stage of life - whether you're starting out, working or planning for retirement
  • sustain the momentum by implementing positive financial habits
  • identify appropriate sources of help

Lali Wiratunga believes in encouraging positive financial behaviours to boost people’s financial confidence. He also advocates for the role of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship in helping people and organisations deliver social impact and financial sustainability. In 2016, Lali was recognised for creating a positive impact through Pro Bono Australia’s Impact 25. Following a career as a corporate lawyer and management consultant in the UK, he's had over 15 years experience in roles across financial services in Australia. He has served in the community as a Board member of a disability services organisation, and is a member of the Alumni Advisory Board at UNSW Business School, where he mentors students and advocates for the value of business education.
