Building Better Opportunities

What is Moneywise Plus?

Moneywise Plus is a free service which supports individuals to increase their confidence and improve both digital and financial skills, in order to help individuals to move towards employment, education and/or training. The programme is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund, through the National Lottery, and the European Social Fund.

Reaching People (a consortium of voluntary and third sector organisations) are the lead organisation delivering Moneywise Plus across Leicester and Leicestershire. The Bridge (East Midlands), as members of the Reaching People consortium, deliver the engagement and assessment element of the project.

  • Increased digital confidence – applying for jobs online, using the internet safely, making use of social media accounts, accessing online services and using PC’s, tablets and mobile devices.
  • Reduce any isolation
