Turn2us is a national charity providing practical help for people who are struggling financially.

Our free workshops are for staff and volunteers who are working with people who are struggling to get by and will teach attendees:

  • Use the Turn2us Benefits Calculator using  case studies so that you can use the calculator yourself
  • How to do a better off calculation quickly
  • Use our Grants Search tool which currently has approximately 1,600 grants on it with financial and non-financial support
  • Write a successful grant application and what most funders look for in an application
  • Where to access resources on Universal Credit, PIP, debt advice, information for homeless people and more 

By the end of a workshop we expect all attendees to have a good knowledge of the Turn2us online tools and to have learnt about the support we offer on our website. With a bit of practice, a benefits calculation can be completed in approx. 7 minutes so long as the client’s information is all to hand.
