Financial support agencies join forces to encourage safer spending this Christmas

November 23, 2021

National Strategy for Financial Capability partners Ngā Tāngata Microfinance, Good Shepherd NZ, Christians Against Poverty (CAP), FinCap and Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission’s Sorted want to make sure those who need some extra financial help and advice know where to turn to.

A campaign promoting the services available of each of the agencies, along with safer ways to shop to avoid a ‘#buynowpainlater’ situation, kicks off this week, in the lead up to Black Friday sales and Christmas.

Ngā Tāngata Microfinance Chief Executive, Natalie Vincent says: “we are encouraging people to get help with their budget, plan safe spending over the holidays and avoid heading into the New Year with unmanageable debt. There is no wrong door to knock on for free support and advice, we are all here to help.”
