Make a House a Home

Living in Furniture Poverty can have a devastating impact on your physical and mental health, and your social and financial wellbeing. Yet over 6m people in the UK are living without essential furniture and appliances, floor and window coverings.

26% of social housing tenants are living in furniture poverty, and 8% are living in ‘deep furniture poverty’, living without three or more essential items. Yet only 2% of social homes are let as furnished, compared to 29% in the private rental sector.

End Furniture Poverty is campaigning for at least 10% of social homes to be furnished, lifting thousands of people out of furniture poverty, providing them with the essential items they desperately need.
