Financial Mentoring

We recognise that difficulties with financial management can be stressful. Stress.
Stress if left unchecked, can have an adverse impact on families and children; in some cases may contribute to the risk of family or domestic violence.

What Do We Do?

  • Our Financial Mentors provide more than just budgeting advice. They provide a one-on-one service focusing on empowering people to get control of their money. They will work alongside you, your family or whānau; to build trust and to assist with the complexity of your needs.
  • Our Financial Mentors have a non-judgemental approach and sound financial knowledge. They will support you to make connections with local networks and social services to ensure you get the right support at the right time (these can include Work and Income, support services for mental health, addictions, housing, etc.)
  • Our Financial Mentors will support and empower you to navigate the system to control debt by negotiating reduced payments with creditors or generating additional resources
  • Our Financial Mentors will advocate on your behalf  to reduce the stress when negotiating with your creditors or other lenders.
What to expect!

Firstly, our Financial Mentors are nice! They are going to ask you a lot of questions, but everything you tell them is completely confidential.
So you can get the most out of our sessions we may ask you to provide information such as a pay slip, Work and Income benefit breakdown, or a bank statement, so we can see how much money you have coming in.
We’ll also need to learn about what you spend. So gather up receipts and bills to help us learn about the following things:

•       Rent or mortgage costs,
•       Power bills,
•       Phone and internet bills,
•       Finance agreements,
•       Loans,
•       Hire purchase contracts,
•       Court fines or proceedings, and
•       Credit card statements.

We’ll go through all of this together and figure out a plan that works for you and your money.
In the meantime, information at these links may help you work on your money.

Happy Customers

“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.”
