Turn2us is a free and independent service helping people in financial need to gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and other financial help.
The Turn2us website – www.turn2us.org.uk includes a free and easy to use Benefits Calculator which helps you to check which welfare benefits you are entitled to, the amounts you could receive and how to make a claim. It calculates entitlements to all means-tested benefits and highlights non-means tested benefits and other help that might be available.
As well as helping people to access welfare benefits, Turn2us has a Grants Search tool containing details of over 3,000 charitable funds. Depending on your background and circumstances, you may be eligible for welfare or educational grants or other support services.
The Turn2us website also features further information and resources on welfare benefits and managing money, including a ‘Find an Adviser’ tool for people to find further advice on their situation in their local area.

Anyone without internet access can contact the free confidential Turn2us helpline on 0808 802 2000 (open Monday to Friday 9am to 8pm).
