Who we are:
Moneywise Plus is a project aimed at improving the ongoing digital and financial competence of people living within Leicester and Leicestershire, supporting them to move towards employment, job search, education or training.
The project is led by Reaching People, a consortium of voluntary and third sector organisations in Leicester and Leicestershire. Moneywise Plus builds on the success of our previous Moneywise programme. Moneywise Plus started in October 2016 and will run until March 2023.
Moneywise Plus is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund.

"My adviser, Jim helped me to apply for courses and taught me tips and tricks on how to save money on utilities. It was important that he was able to listen and empathise with me. This experience has improved my confidence massively."
