White goods and furniture: where to get help

Find out where you can get help with the costs of white goods and furniture.


In 2019 and 2020, Turn2us ran a campaign to highlight the scale of people in the UK living without essential appliances and furniture. 

This page was created as part of the campaign, but we know that the issue is still widespread today. Here, you'll find up-to-date information about the support you can get if you're struggling without household appliances and furniture. 

Use our tools and information today to see what could be available.

Grants Search

Use our Grants Search: Check if you’re eligible for support from over 1,500 grant-giving charities, including those who may give a white goods grant. Search for grants based on your circumstances (such as age, location, career history, and any health conditions you may have).
