Free financial guidance being under-utilised

Maureen from Snells Beach & Mahurangi East

Nearly every day there is another ‘news’ item about the impact COVID19 on us. Whatever the definition of our situation, whether we are working, unemployed, retired, COVID19 is having an impact on our ability to manage our day to day living and financial circumstances.

Nearly every day there is another ‘news’ item about the impact COVID19 on us. Whatever the definition of our situation, whether we are working, unemployed, retired, COVID19 is having an impact on our ability to manage our day to day living and financial circumstances.

This latest survey highlights that “free financial guidance and options to negotiate with creditors are under-utilised”.

If your current situation is causing you to be unsettled, stressed, anxious and/or confusing, debt management and budgeting advice is only a phone call away. It doesn’t matter how severe those feelings are, just talking to someone who can guide you and, if necessary, help with creditor negotiations and more, will improve your sense of wellbeing.

Make that phone call: 09 423 7123

In New Zealand, business entertaining often occurs at drinks party events with elegant finger food hosted in the office reception or board room. The menu must be varied, with some vegetarian and gluten-free options and offer a mixture of fresh and crunchy palate-tempting snacks.

The Classic Club Sandwich remains one of these 'comfort dishes' that is ever popular but it needs to hold together so that the components don't slip alway and fall on your special jacket or silk dress.
