Get involved with the Living Without campaign

If you have experienced what it is like to live without basic household goods, or simply want to help fight UK poverty, there are many ways you can get involved with the campaign.

Share your story

If you have experienced what it is like to live without household goods, got into debt to buy household goods or lived with faulty goods, you can share your story by emailing:


Give people the dignity of living with basic household essentials. Give today to help a family afford a cooker to make healthy meals for their family. Your donation will change lives of people living without beyond measure.

By donating today you will be giving vital support to individuals and families struggling with a financial crisis. You will be helping people like Helen who has regained control of her life thanks to the support provided by Turn2us, only made possible by the generosity of people like yourself.


Raise awareness on social media by using the hashtag #LivingWithout. Tag your local MP and other influential people in posts to highlight the scale of the problem.


You can support the campaign by downloading and sharing our campaign infographics:


Last year we gave over £3 million to people most in need. Much of that went towards helping people with household essentials. We invite you to join #teamturn2us and participate in one of our fun events. Or you can organise your very own event to raise vital funds to support those living without. Visit our fundraising pages for all the details.


If you work with financially vulnerable people, come to a free Turn2us workshop to learn how to use the Benefits Calculator and Grants Search. These tools can help you help those most in need.
