Co-production and involvement at Turn2us

We recognise the value of lived experience of financial hardship. We pay people with lived expertise to help develop our work with us. We call this co-production and involvement.

Want to know more about our approach?

Our approach to co-production and involvement is explained fully in our framework. 

Our purpose

We co-produce our work, so that we can combine the power of Turn2us with the collective power of people with lived experience, and learn from one another.

How did we create the framework? 

We created our co-production framework following the 4pi National Standards on Involvement from the National Survivors User Network, the UK's only mental health charity who centre the survivor and lived experience voice.

Get involved

We are always looking for more people with a lived experience of financial hardship to work with. 

If you’d be interested in working with Turn2us in the future, please send an email to, to let us know.
