Turn2Us is a national charity, focused on helping people in financial need gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and other financial help.
The Turn2Us website has been designed primarily to help people who are in work, yet still struggling financially, by providing information on the support available.
This allows people to access further help, whether they are in full-time or part-time employment, on a zero-hour contract, or on leave from work.
Turn2Us also provides a Grants Search tool which brings together information on over 3000 charitable funds covering the whole of the United Kingdom.
Both the Benefits Calculator and the Grants Search tool can be used on mobiles, making it easier to carry out searches at any time. Alternatively, you can call the free helpline if you require additional information and support.
The Benefits Calculator
The Benefits Calculator helps individuals from all backgrounds access information on the welfare benefits they may be entitled to, how much they could receive and how to make a claim.
The Benefits Calculator will only ask questions relevant to an individual’s particular circumstances and will:
- Calculate entitlement to all UK means tested benefits
- Calculate future benefits entitlement as personal circumstances change
- Signpost to non-means tested benefits and other concessions
- Show you results at each step of the calculation so you can see potential entitlement as you progress
Show a detailed results page, with a summary of the information entered, the benefits identified, estimates for weekly and annual entitlement and guidance on how to claim
Give you the ability to retrieve, complete and alter calculations at a later date
Turn2Us also provides a Grants Search tool - bringing together information on over 3000 charitable funds covering the whole of the United Kingdom.
You can search for grants by location, or get a more specific result by answering tailored questions, which will highlight those grants you have the greatest chance of successfully applying for.
The Turn2Us helpline is a free, confidential and independent service for people who do not have internet access, or need help to use any of the services.
The helpline is open 9am – 8pm Monday – Friday
The Helpline Number is 0808 802 2000
