Life hacks are all the rage at the moment, and one new free course is helping people navigate the complexities of the modern world.
How to "Adult" is an initiative supported by a collection of government and community groups, and its weekly drop in sessions at Bega's Sapphire Community Pantry are aiming to help residents with everything from budgeting and finding rental accommodation, to applying for an identity card.
Karen Wright from the not-for-profit Wellways said the course is desperately needed in the region.
"There's a whole heap of adult life skills I find are missing from people I work with," she said.
"It's like there's a missing step between being a teenager and adulthood."
South East Women and Children's Services' Kylie Furnell spoke to participants about her mobile phone app Skillbot, which was developed with the help of Bega's 2pi Software.
The pantry's Christine Welsh said the course will help people "navigate the maze" of adult life and avoid financial debt.
