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.
