Homes & property Furnished housing (for social renting tenants)

If you rent from the Council or a housing association, you can get help to furnish, or partly furnish, your home.

A fully furnished home includes carpets, curtains, beds, table, chairs, sofas, cooker, freezer and so on.  A part-furnished package can include things like:

  • sofa, two armchairs, large dining table and four dining chairs (around £16 a week); or
  • bed and mattress, wardrobe and chest of drawers (around £8 a week)

Most people go for packages like this - but you can have just one item like a cooker.
