Newtown Budgeting and Advocacy Services

As a Building Financial Capability provider NBAS assists clients who are struggling with their finances. 

Most of our clients are WINZ recipients and cost of living increases impact them particularly hard.
NBAS Mentors work along side clients; to help get them out of debt, and able to live within their budget.

Our service is client led; client's identify what financial goals they would like to achieve and we work together to reach those goals. In so doing clients learn skills to help them better manage their finances in the future.

Advocacy: We are also able to highlight issues to relevant government ministries. Example: Lack of social housing means Immigration NZ houses many refugees in private expensive housing immediately putting many of them in hardship.
