Moneywise is a Leicester City project being led by asra Housing Group in partnership with Community Advice & Law Service (CALS), Action Homeless, The Y and Leicester City Council.
Moneywise provides a ‘financial confidence route way’ for eligible social housing clients. Building on existing provision, experience from providers and through talking to tenants and other stakeholders Moneywise has designed a flexible range of support mechanisms to assist people to understand the world of money and increase financial awareness and skills.
Moneywise is yet another example of Reaching People organisations (in this instance asra, Action Homeless and CALS) working together to provide valuable services and support to the local community. Working with another RP member, the Y, extends the access to the project to young people across the city, helping to guide and support them in building good financial habits early in their life.
