Moneywise Plus

Leicestershire County Council is a delivery partner organisation for Moneywise Plus.

The aims of the project are to ensure that participants have:

  • Increased financial confidence – greater capacity to manage daily budgets, making the most of money, opening a bank account, mobile/internet banking, and maximising income (e.g. utility switching).
  • Increased digital confidence – applying for jobs online, using the internet safely, staying in touch with family and friends, accessing online services, and using computers, tablets and mobile devices.
  • Increased confidence and reduced isolation

This will be done through:

  • Outreach sessions at dedicated venues across Leicester and Leicestershire
  • Financial and digital group workshops
  • One to one adviser support
  • Opportunities for volunteering

Leicestershire County Council’s role will be to deliver Digital Drop-in Sessions at libraries around the county.
