Welcome to the MoneyPlus Newsletter.

We’ve been hard at work on some big things this month, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Amongst all the recent changes that are happening around the country regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, remember that we’re here if you need us.

If your personal circumstance has changed, or if you find yourself struggling to manage your finances, give us a call on 0161 837 4000, or email us at info@moneyplus.com, and we’ll help you find the best solution to get you back on track.

Now, on to the news…


Helping our local communities.

MoneyPlus Energy is partnering with The Trussell Trust, the nation’s largest network of food banks, as we believe that everyone deserves not only a warm, safe home, but access to life’s basic necessities.

In the first half of 2020, the financial impact of the Coronavirus pandemic has forced many more families to turn to food banks in order to have access to basic supplies. This has put increased pressure on the Trust’s already overstretched network, which continues to process a record number of emergency food packages.

That’s why we’re setting up a new energy plan, in which we’ll donate £50 to The Trussell Trust for every switch, so they can continue providing a necessary service to those in crisis.

How far does £50 go?

  • £10 could help give a parent peace of mind that their family won’t go hungry tonight.
  • £20 could help support someone take their first steps out of poverty.
  • £50 could help give more people a place to turn to in times of crisis.

No matter the size of donation, every penny goes towards helping The Trussell Trust provide practical support to those who need it most, and to continue their campaign for a UK without the need for food banks.

Our new plan is coming soon, and we’ll let you know when it’s here. If you can’t wait, you can still switch and save with us! We’re currently saving our customers an average of £500 each per year on their energy bills* and we could help you save, too.

Money saving tip of the month.

Many people are taking their spare time during the pandemic to organise their savings, with official figures showing households are saving more of their disposable income than at any time for four years.

It also revealed that UK households saved 8.6% of their disposable income in the first three months of the year, up from 5.4% during the same period last year.

This is a great step forward for many households however, it comes just as the interest rates paid by banks have slumped. In fact, interest paid on variable easy access savings accounts has fallen faster in the first half of 2020 than in the first half of any year since 2009.

This may leave some savers feeling frustrated, but don’t give up! We’ve found a low-down of the best savings rates on the market – just click here to browse, and watch your savings grow!


Meet the Team.

Jonathan Mills – Commercial Director

“I can remember the moment I got extremely excited about joining the MoneyPlus family. It was when Chris, our CEO, explained his vision, which was essentially to diversify an already successful financial services business in to a consumer-centric lifestyle brand. Fast forward two years, and we’re already making big waves across various industries – disrupting the domestic energy market, advancing our foothold in the financial advice sector and offering legal expertise like no other law firm. We have a long way to go, but we’re helping tens of thousands of customers each and every day.

What sets us apart is where we have come from – our debt advisory business. We are humbled daily by customer stories that form the foundations of everything we do; how we can help you, how we can save you money, and how we can ease the burden and stress that unmanageable debt can bring. It’s with that determination that places our other propositions in an honest and transparent space that is completely unique within their respective sectors.

We will continue to grow and offer new services to our customers, which is great, but we couldn’t do this without our dedicated staff, who always go above and beyond for all our customers. We don’t look to make a quick win and profit is not our priority, we treat every customer as an individual and do everything in our power to help them live better.”
