Essential Items

What essential items can a Community Support Grant consider?

We have a set list of the essential household items we can consider under the scheme. When making an award we will review the customer's circumstances, which items have been provided within the tenancy, and which items are appropriate for the household size.

For example, a single person will be considered for a single bed, and will not be considered for a double bed.  When considering seating we will order the appropriate seating for the household size a couple would receive 2-seater sofa and a single person would receive an armchair.

The scheme currently considers the following essential household items

Gas or Electric cooker (With installation), Washing Machine, Fridge Freezer, Crockery, Kettle, Saucepan set, Seating (Armchair, 2-seater sofa or 3-seater sofa), Single bed or Double bed, Bedding, Towels, Cot & Mattress, Push Chair, High Chair & Bottle Sterilisation pack. 

This is a set list of the items the scheme can consider, and we are not able to consider any alternative items.

Please visit the "What happens when an award is made" page for more information about the suppliers we use and how we order the items on behalf of customers.
