Agape Budgeting Service Ltd is a Charitable Company registered at the Charities Commission. Agape has helped over 3500 families in the Wellington region since it began in 1993.
Agape is a volunteer organisation with a number of volunteer Budget Advisers supported by a part time paid Budget Manager.
What We Do
Agape provides free of charge budget advice via trained volunteers to clients throughout the Wellington region. We work with our clients as long as they want help. Advisors normally visit clients where they live making budgeting advice available to those who are unable to leave their homes. In addition Agape operates budgeting centres, or has networks of budgeters across the region. We also have budget advisers operating from the Porirua CAB at set times during the week.
Our one-on-one approach means advisors are able to tailor support to meet individual needs. Meeting our clients in their own homes provides a unique opportunity to identify other needs they might have and connect them up to other services and their local communities. Agape has strong relationships with other community organisations that are able to provide a range of support including mental health and addiction services, housing, and provision of food and clothing.
Our mission is to walk alongside and to offer a helping hand so that those we support, gain control and can envisage for themselves a life free from financial struggle.
In this we become the feet and hands of Jesus.
To see more people in Wellington region to feel free of the burden of unmanageable debt and financial stress
"Taking them by the hand, they helped them up ...
they became strong ... and began to walk"
