How Can We Help?

Our professional team of Financial Mentors offer a completely confidential and non-judgmental service to help individuals take control of their finances build their financial capability and to successfully manage their own money.


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.


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.


Workshops & Seminars

We offer a range of short courses and one-off seminars, webinars or workshops on any money topic your group is interested in.Courses and workshops can be tailored to meet your group’s needs.

All of our professional Financial Mentors are fully qualified. We work closely with FinCap and other community services to provide the best service for our clients and our community.


“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.”
