Intermediaries guide: What does Turn2us do?

Turn2us helps people struggling with financial hardship gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and other financial help – online, by phone and face to face through our partner organisations.

Research has shown that people who have money difficulties are more likely to be reached through face-to-face support. That is why the work of intermediaries - advisers, support workers, volunteer visitors, welfare officers and others who have regular face-to-face contact with people in financial need is fundamental to Turn2us and at the heart of what we do.

The Turn2us website

Our free, accessible website is a comprehensive and invaluable resource designed to help you find appropriate sources of financial support, quickly and easily, based on the particular needs and circumstances of the people you are working with.

Features include:

  • A Benefits Calculator to help people to make sure they receive all the welfare benefits they are entitled to

  • A Grants Search containing the details of around 1.500 charitable funds that may be able to provide financial support and other services

  • Information on benefits and grants

  • A Find an Adviser tool to help users find local advisers according to their needs

  • Confidential ‘My Turn2us’ accounts used to make online enquiries to grant-giving charities and to provide additional comparison tools to help you compare how your clients' benefits might change if their circumstances do.
