Wiltshire Money is the lead body for financial inclusion activity within the county and provides a strategic framework for local organisations to co-ordinate their work, develop collaborative partnerships and share lessons learnt. Essentially it aims to help people make informed financial choices and be in control of their money.
Wiltshire Money is made up of partners who strive working towards the project's aims and objectives.
