Help with basic furniture

If you need help with basic furniture or other household goods, we may be able to help. We do not replace items you already have.

To get help with furniture and household goods, you must be receiving one of the following:

  • Universal Credit - except if there is an amount shown for earnings
  • Income Based Job Seekers allowance
  • Income Related Employment Support Allowance
  • Pension Credit
  • Income Support

The scheme is purely discretionary and you have no automatic right to the extra help.

You will not need to repay anything but if you sell or dispose of the items, we will ask you to repay an amount equal to the value of the items we provided.
