Turn2us has secured funding from Oak Foundation to deliver a project to enable the charity to assist more people in financial hardship. Oak Foundation has committed £333k over a three year period.
Alison Taylor, Director of Turn2us Operations, said, “We are delighted to receive this support from Oak Foundation. It will enable us to expand our much needed helpline services to target those hard-to-reach groups who are not aware of the benefits and grants available to them and are struggling financially to cover everyday costs. It will also enable us to share a wealth of up-to-date analysis and insight from our helpline and online services - which are used by over four million people a year - with other organisations to help inform policy and campaigning work to improve services for people living in poverty. With Oak’s support, we can directly provide timely and targeted support to more people and also assist the work of other organisations who are campaigning to help people living in poverty.”
The project will start in April 2017. If you would like any additional information, please contact Alison Taylor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
