Daniel's Story

By using the Turn2us Benefits Calculator, Daniel found he was entitled to Employment and Support Allowance and one-room bedroom rate for Housing Benefit.

When Daniel, 38, was due to be released from HMP Highpoint after serving six and a half years, Kareen, a Project Coordinator at Diagrama Foundation UK, used the skills she learned in a Turn2us workshop to help him.

By using the Turn2us Benefits Calculator to see if Daniel would be better off in a parole hostel or on licence at his parents' home, Kareen discovered he was entitled to one-bedroom rate for Housing Benefit and Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).

She secured the accommodation which left Daniel greatly reassured and further aided his commitment to leaving crime behind.
