Financial Mentoring

Our qualified Financial mentors provide more than budgeting. They provide a one-on-one service focusing on empowering people to get control of their money. They work alongside a person, their family and whānau, building trust and taking into account the complexity of their needs.

MoneyMates

Community Education

MoneyMates support groups are based around the concept of sharing and learning together as a group.This type of approach has proven successful in both large and small communities, as seen with programmes such as Weight Watchers.

Testimonial

“I reached out to Hamilton Budgeting services seeking support for a facilitator to facilitate our Financial Budgeting Seminar and was connected with Tony. We were able to host a 3-day seminar covering major arears our target audience identified to struggled in most. We found the workshop to be very engaging and supportive and was set in a non-judgmental safe environment. Hamilton Budgeting Services were very accommodating & supportive which made it easy to plan/organize the seminar. Thank you for providing our community with a safe and supportive service.”
