Turn2us   is part of the Elizabeth Finn Care charity. Per Turn2us: "Turn2us helps people in financial need gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and other financial help – online, by phone and face to face through our partner organisations....Funds exist to help people – through welfare benefits, grants and other financial help – but access to them continues to be a frustrating barrier for many individuals...the need for a service to help people access the funds they desperately need becomes increasingly relevant and urgent. This is what Turn2us provides."


There is also a benefits calculator on site "You could be missing out on financial help available to you through welfare benefits. This free and easy-to-use calculator can help you check what you might be entitled to."


There is also a Grants Search tool to "help you find the most appropriate funds, based on your circumstances and needs."


Visit the Turn2us site to see if they can help you.
