What we do . Good Cents

Good Cents

The Good Cents initiative in Porirua addresses the high levels of debt and high-interest loans that exist in the communities that can least afford them.

From discussion and support groups to budgeting advice

Good Cents supports community awareness and a culture of change in a community where debt can mean interest rates of 400% or more.

The Good Cents initiative provides practical community based support and education so that people can gain more control over their personal finances.

The 8-week courses are free and run once a term on Tuesdays between 10am and 12pm.

Good Cents – Making Change

“I’ve learned how to still have a bit of money at the end of the week. It’s not a lot but I’m doing it.”

Check out our video, Making Change, which looks at the impact that doing the 8-week Good Cents course has on people’s lives.
