Turn2us Benefits Calculator – Free Workshops

With the support of Comic Relief Turn2us will run two FREE workshops at the Orcel Centre in Hartlepool on 19 June 2017 to help you support people in financial hardship using their tools. The workshops are open to staff and volunteers from organisations  working with people in financial hardship and through them we will teach you how to use the Turn2us Benefits Calculator, Grants Search and other online help people maximise their income.

What will I learn in the workshop? 

  • How to use the Turn2us Intermediaries Benefits Calculator and Grants Search tool.
  • How to access other resources including Find an Adviser and information on benefits and charitable grants.
  • The features and benefits of a MyTurn2us account, which enables intermediaries to apply directly to grant-giving charities online and to save benefit calculations.
  • Where to find the latest information on benefit changes including the roll out of universal credit, localised council tax support and housing benefit 

And there will also be lots of opportunities for questions, answers and sharing of ideas throughout!

Please click onto the relevant link below (and follow the instructions) to book onto either of these workshops.

Morning Session – 9.30am to 12.30pm


Afternoon Session – 1.00pm to 4.00pm


In addition, this funding is allowing Turn2us to offer the opportunity for organisations in the North East of England to have an in-house workshop and/or to also have a FREE portal on their website, linking to our resources.

The Portal will allow organisation to embed the Turn2us benefits calculator and/or our grants search tool directly onto their website and Turn2us will provide insight data, free of charge.
