As part of their advocacy work on the consumer credit law reform FinCap are organising education and training workshops around New Zealand.
We live in a strong democracy, and for it to work well anyone with something to say needs to engage with the political system.
We have an opportunity to make a real change and reduce the harm from consumer credit experienced by our clients.
Your voice is powerful and is needed. Politicians take your views as front line consumer advocates seriously.
Come along to the workshop to find out how you can use your voice to make a positive change to the law.
Lunch is catered so please register your interest through this link: https://bit.ly/2HQir9o. Or by contacting Nelson Budget Service.
The workshops will be facilitated by Soraiya Daud, Communications Adviser at FinCap and Melissa Harward, research intern from Victoria University of Wellington.
The workshops are divided into two parts.
The first part is an opportunity to find out about what exactly the Government is doing to reform consumer credit law in New Zealand. We will be providing analysis and information on what needs to be improved, based on your feedback and international research.
The second part of the workshop is a skills session, supporting you to share your stories from the front line. We will be sharing skills on how to talk to MPs, how to write and present submissions, how to talk to the media and how to participate in a digital campaign.
