Turn2us nominated for Guardian Public Service Award

Turn2us Connect has been nominated for the Guardian Public Service Award for Digital Innovation.

The Guardian Public Service Awards aim to highlight outstanding public service teams, projects and individuals.

Turn2us Connect was a new volunteer project launched by Turn2us earlier this year, a digital service to help people apply for benefits, such as Universal Credit. This was in response to research showing people were not applying for benefits due to several barriers that could be overcome with the help of a trained volunteer.

The Turn2us Connect App connects volunteer Digital Buddies with people that are eligible to apply for Universal Credit and would like help with doing so. The volunteers support their Connections with information and emotional support via the app to help them overcome barriers to applying for benefits.

We wish Turn2us best of luck at the awards!
