How do charitable funds and grants work?
How do I use the Turn2us Grants Search?
Our Grants Search database makes searching for grants much easier.
It contains details of 3,000 charitable funds that give grants for welfare or educational purposes.
In many cases, you can also make online enquiries to charitable funds through the Turn2us website.
You can use the Turn2us Grants Search to build up a picture of your background and situation to find possible charitable funds that may be able to help
See the Turn2us How do I search for help using the Turn2us Grants Search guide for more information.
What information do I need to do a grants search?

Isle of Man and Channel Islands
The Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are not part of the UK and have their own governments, benefits system and charity registration schemes.
Although our Grants Search does not list charities that specifically help people in the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, many national charities, such as occupational and health related funds, may help people who live in these territories. Contact any funds you find that seem to match your background, needs and circumstances for more information.
Our Find an Adviser tool includes information on advisory organisations for the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. These may be able to provide you with more information about local organisations.
