About Wiseradviser

Wiseradviser training and support is delivered by the Money Advice Trust, a charity formed in 1991. Our vision is to help people across the UK to tackle their debts and manage their money with confidence.

The Trust aims to provide Wiseradviser services free of charge to charities in England & Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland which provide free advice to their clients and service users.

High quality, effective training

Wiseradviser can benefit anyone working with people facing financial difficulties. We offer a wide range of training courses, from flexible e-learning that you can complete at your own pace, to face-to-face classroom courses which provide engaging teaching from leading experts.

If you’re new to money advice, our training can equip you with basic tools to help someone in debt, such as completing a budget and negotiating on non-priority debts. For more experienced advisers, Wiseradviser can help you maintain in depth knowledge and assist you in providing the best possible advice. Available topics include energy debt, payday loans, and business debt.

Our training makes a real difference to those people giving advice and to people in debt:

  • 99% of advisers who used our training found that it enabled them to better meet the needs of their clients
  • 93% of advisers would recommend Wiseradviser training to a colleague

The Wiseradviser training website brings you the latest sector news, hosts a lively discussion forum where advisers can share ideas and ask questions, and provides quick access to an online library of useful resources. Continued professional development opportunities are available in the Wiseradviser Extra section – including podcasts, guest blogs, and bitesize courses on hot topics.

Created by the Trust, there’s also a range of Wiseradviser tools to support the advice process – CASHflow, the Common Financial Statement, and self-help packs for individuals and businesses.

We also provide training for organisations in the creditor and commercial sectors – visit the Money Advice Trust website or contact us for more information.
