Furnishing and decorating your new home

When you move into your new home, you may not have a lot of furniture. Some homes may not have flooring or white goods such as fridges and washing machines. The walls may also be bare.

There are organisations that can support you with furniture packages, paint or refurbished goods:

You may also have a local re-use centre in your area. They can help to refurbish furniture to a good standard. They are usually close to your local household recycling centre.

Many people offer items they no longer need on Freegle, Facebook Marketplace or Freecycle.

Some people may be eligible for a Community Support Grant that can provide beds.

You can also check Turn2Us to see if there are any other grants you are eligible for.
