Turn2us Coronavirus direct grants for people who have been affected in the UK
One-off crisis grant of £500 per household
Covid-19 is undoubtedly the largest public health crisis for a generation and is a threat to all of our lives. The length of the disruption caused by the virus is unknown but what they can be certain of is that millions of people will find themselves in financial hardship. While the government’s measures will help many in time, they aim to alleviate some of the immediate financial pressures of those most in need.
The Turn2us Coronavirus Grant Fund has been set up to support people who have lost their income as a result of the Coronavirus and to meet their immediate basic household expenses.
How they can help:
Please note that they are unable to replace your income. They are able to provide a one-off crisis grant of £500 per household towards essential living expenses (food, bills etc).
Who can apply:
They can only help those who are in immediate financial difficulty due to the Coronavirus. You will need to satisfy all of the following criteria:
- You can clearly demonstrate a loss of income due to Covid-19 (evidence will be required showing at least a 50% reduction in earnings, we can accept bank statements, letter from employer outlining change in employment)
- You are a resident of the UK / Republic of Ireland
- You are not currently in Further or Higher Education
- You are over 18
- You have less than £1K savings (single person) or less than £2K savings (couple/family)
Please note that if you have received a Turn2us grant in the last 6 months they will be unable to assist you.
