Money Max: A New Money Support Service for Leicestershire Residents
Money Max is a holistic money support service launched in July 2021 by Citizens Advice LeicesterShire (CitAL). It operates in all Leicestershire districts except Charnwood. The service is funded by Leicestershire County Council.
Money Max aims to provide intensive support to Leicestershire residents struggling with debt or who have money management issues. This support is provided through CitAL’s specialist Money Advice Service. Clients can also access budgeting help and advice on energy, housing, and welfare benefits.
Money Max Project Workers will support clients throughout their journey with CitAL. From identifying their entitlements to benefits to the confirmation of the outcome.
This support can involve:
- applications and form filling
- speaking to third-parties on behalf of the clients
- challenging decisions, as well as
- building financial capability through financial education.
Money Max has already supported 25 clients with over 100 issues since its launch in late July. Clients have been provided with the appropriate money management skills and advice which will support them long-term. From the feedback that has been received, the support has already proved to be a real lifeline.
The service is open between Monday and Friday, 9am-4:30pm.
