Budget Advice

All Budget Advisers receive initial and ongoing training.

We provide a free and confidential service where you can be assisted with all aspects of your personal budget.

Your Budget Adviser will work with you in order to:

  • Prepare a budget and cash flow
  • Detail your income and expenditure
  • Help you manage debts and arrears
  • Strength based plan and goal setting
  • Prioritise spending
  • Help you to monitor your expenses
  • Inform and action your entitlements and rights

Our Budget Advisers operate from the Anglican Care Centre, Kamo Community Link, Hikurangi Village Church and in the Ruakaka/Waipu area.

In special circumstances we will make home visits.
