News at NSBS

Interesting reads on the cost of living crisis and financial capability sector in New Zealand including thought leadership articles, tips, guides and analysis.





NSBS has been recognised by the Government with a special certificate and pendant for the important work and responsive measures the non-profit organisation provided to individuals and whānau during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ordinary Kiwis are doing it tough and are more in need than ever of financial mentoring services to overcome the burden of financial stress that they are under.   The financial mentor team at NSBS has seen a significant rise in the number of people seeking help with financial budgeting and debt resolution due to the rise in the cost of living, inflation, and interest rates.
Women’s wealth and advising women on how to attain financial independence and financial security for themselves and their families is part of NSBS’s strategic vision, and in line with the government’s national strategy for financial capability.
