The project is lead 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 now has an extension until December 2021.
This project is being funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund.

You can also see more information on our AGM event held on 29th November 2019 by clicking hereWhen the Moneywise Plus Project was designed in 2016 consideration was given to aligning roles from the previous Get Moneywise Project within the new budget available. There was a sense of a need for continuity. However, the Get Moneywise Plus programme was considerably different in terms of the expectations and demands, and the inherited terms and conditions have proven inappropriate in terms of the salary of frontline delivery posts. ERS has supported this process and this report summarises the progress made. Below is the document on Moneywise Plus Job evaluation Report.
