Sort out your money worries

Learn how to reduce debt and manage your expenses

Being in debt is stressful and can feel embarrassing. Family Works provides a free, confidential service to help you work towards greater financial freedom. Imagine having no debt, being ready for surprise expenses and even saving for your future! We can help you make that possible.

1:1 Mentors

Our trained Financial Mentors/Budget Advisors can meet with you one-to-one to talk about your money worries in confidence.

Once you’ve met a few times, our mentors will support you to create, and stick to, your own Financial Plan of Action. With a bit of effort and a lot of support, you’ll soon start seeing your debts reduce and have money in the bank for those unexpected expenses.

 Money Mates Workshops

Sometimes it’s helpful to be around others who are in a similar situation to you. Our Money Mates workshops let you do just that – meet, discuss, share and problem solve about money with others. You don’t have to share your personal situation unless you want to.
