Turn2us is a national charity helping people in financial hardship to gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and support services. You can use their free services by going to their website to use their benefits calculator to check what welfare benefits and tax credits you are entitled to.
You can use their Grants Search tool with details of over 3,000 charitable funds that can provide grants for household items such as cookers, fridges, washing machines, or help with everyday living costs, practical assistance and emotional support.
There is information, resources and other tools, such as finding a local adviser and a debt management tool, which you might find helpful.
£13 billion in benefits goes unclaimed each year, so check their site to find out if you’re entitled to anything that could help you.
You can then re-apply for a loan from us to get what you need.
The Money Advice Service gives free debt advice that helps you manage your money better. Call 0300 500 5000 or visit their website.
