Turn2us: advice for journalists who need support

During the last few years many journalists have found themselves struggling financially, having either been made redundant, or, suffered a reduction of freelance work in the downturn.

In these circumstances providing for families or just dealing with an uncertain future can cause a great deal of stress and illness.  In many cases those affected may well have had no idea which way to turn for help and support.

Turn2us can help

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 partner organisations.

It is an entirely confidential service which may be accessed through their website – www.turn2us.org.uk – or through their Freephone number – 0808 802 2000 between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday.
