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 your work as an intermediary between people in financial need and the services we provide is fundamental to Turn2us and at the heart of what we do.
