Turn2us are pleased to share with our first-ever Impact report, which has a particular focus on the charity’s response to Covid.
The 2020 Covid-19 pandemic has had profound effects on the UK economy and caused many people to experience severe disruption to their employment and personal finances.
Since March 2020, 11.4 million people have been placed on furlough, 2.2 million more people are now claiming Universal Credit due to the pandemic and 693,000 people have been made redundant.
While certain groups have seen their income and livelihoods particularly affected - including women, single parents, younger people, and people from minoritised backgrounds - the effects of the pandemic have been felt throughout UK society.
This Impact Report tries to highlight this inequality while demonstrating the impact we’ve had on people’s lives.
