There are costs incurred in furnishing your home.  These could include:

  • Carpets and floor coverings
  • Settee
  • Television
  • Wardrobe and set of drawers
  • Bed
  • Fridge/freezer
  • Oven
  • Washing Machine.   


Moving can be expensive and not everyone can afford to buy all their furniture and white goods brand new.

There are local organisations that could help you to obtain furniture for your new home including:

  • Ashgate Hospice Furniture Store
    Storforth Lane Trading Estate, Hasland
    Tel: 01246 229536
    Opening times - Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm
    All money made goes to support the Ashgate Hospice.
  • YMCA Furniture Project
    Units 42-43 Station Lane Industrial Estate, Old Whittington

  • Free pages on social media
    There are a variety of free and gifting pages on social media where you can find items in your local area which people no longer want.  The idea is to pass goods on and keep useable goods out of landfills.
