The Turn2us Benefits Calculator is an amazing resource for millions of people living in the UK that don’t know what they are entitled to. The next step, actually applying for benefits, is a stressful process for many people. Multiple forms to fill in, alien language and lack of confidence that the situation will improve.
Turn2us Connect is about to launch. This project aims to help more people apply for the welfare support they are entitled, through a volunteer buddying system. Recruitment for this role starts now. Volunteers will receive training in December, ready to start in January 2019.
Volunteers also known as Digital Buddies will be matched to a person applying for benefits, aka Connections. You will be a hand to hold and a source of emotional and practical support to support someone through a stressful time in their lives.
The role can fit into your busy schedule. You can provide much needed support to someone from your living room, on your coffee break, or on the train to work. All you need is a smartphone and the drive to help people get through tough times.
