We offer a wide range of services to our community, including;

Budgeting

Our professional advisers provide free, confidential, one to one budgeting advice to families and individuals. Budgeting allows you to gain control of your household finances. Working together with your adviser we record your income and expenditure. We work out where your money is going and plan where you would like it to go. This can help you to pay off debts, save and plan for the future. Your budget adviser works with you for as long as you need them.

We are affiliated to New Zealand Federation of Family Budgeting Services (link to their website) which provides professional training for our advisers and set the standards that we must meet.

Counselling

Our qualified counsellors can help you to work through a wide range of issues including depression, stress, anxiety, grief & loss, conflict resolution, parenting support, relationship, life changes and family dynamics.
