St Francis of Assisi Dunedin Trust

St Francis of Assisi Dunedin Trust

The St Francis of Assisi Dunedin Trust was recently formed by a group of Dunedin Catholics. Our aim is to provide small interest-free loans and other support to enable people to become more financially independent. Reducing problem debt has been highlighted as one way to improve the circumstances of poor children in New Zealand.

Our programmes include:

• Access to no-interest loans and debt-reduction loans, in partnership with Nga Tangata Trust and Dunedin Budget Advisory Services

• Access to small grants to help improve financial outcomes of people in need, in partnership with local agencies including Catholic Social Services

• Access to information on financial literacy and other financial help available in Dunedin.

We are in the process of implementing several programmes and are looking for volunteers with a range of skills, from budget advice and other financial knowledge to general building skills and administration.
