Moneywise Plus is a 3 year project funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. Moneywise Plus will improve the on-going digital and financial skills of individuals to support them in moving towards employment, education or training.

Moneywise Plus will help individuals across Leicestershire with:

Support is available through:
  • Outreach taster sessions

  • Opportunities for volunteering/peer mentoring

Available across locations in Leicester and Leicestershire
