Turn2us is a national charity that helps people in the UK and Ireland who are in financial need. Turn2us provides information and support about accessing welfare benefits and charitable grants.  They also have two grants which may be accessed by carers in Norfolk – Elizabeth Finn Fund and the Response Fund.  Turn2us has a website and helpline to help find appropriate sources of financial support quickly and easily, based on their particular needs and circumstances.
