  5. I am 20 years of age council offered me a 2 bed flat I will be living on my own no children and im on jsa am I entitled to a loan to help get furniture

  6. I am unemployed and have been since last December,have applied for employment support allowance,and yesterday posted off its booklet aswell as a three month sick certificate enclosed,which I received from my new gp practice at thornhill surgery,on the same day.i registered with the practice on the 2nd may and had to wait until 13thmay to see the nurse in order to make an appointment with my new doctor.i was offered a one bedroom flat by Southampton city council on the 19th February,collected the keys for it on the 22nd march and was told I had to move in by the 25th,or else I woud loose the flat.i was consistently bidding with the council every 2 weeks,for 6 years and when I moved in I had no furniture or capital to furnish the flat.i also had to have the flat painted and decorated as it was in a bad state andhad to buy some white goods including a couple of pieces of furniture in order to continue living in the flat comfortably.i am still sleeping on a settee and have only purchased a fridge and washing machine second hand ,along with my settee,tv cabinet and a bed which needs assembling,all secondhand.this process of paying a painter and decorator,and buying a few pieces of furniture has eaten away at the bulk of my savings and am only left now with 600 pounds which is going to have to pay for my bills,ie,heating,water,electric,tv licence,counil tax,landline,broadband,and 50 pounds a month towards my Southampton city council rent,as my housing benefit does not cover my entire rent per month.the reason being is,as I have no money coming in at the moment from esa, my employment support allowance only just covers my bills and I am left with just 50 p0unds a moth to live on if i’m lucky.that 50 pounds will go on toiletries and food only.after this months bills are paid out of my account savings,as I am not receiving esa at the moment,i shall be left with 300 pouns altogether,as I have also got to renew my passport this month aswell,due to its’ expiry,which will cost roughly 80 pounds.please could you qualify me for a community care grant as a result of my dilemma,i still need to carpet my flat as the floors are very bad and cold.table and chairs,maybe another settee and a bedside cabinet.furniture as yet in my bedroom,no cooker,microwave.living off pot noodle.thankyou

  21. Hi, I am hoping someone could help me? I would like to know if I am eligible for a budget/ crisis loan. I am currently living in a 2 bed rented property and we are due to move out at the end of May. My partner is currently receiving JSA and I work full-time and my income is £15.039 annually. I am pregnant and have got priority from my local council to move and I was wondering if I would be eligible for a crisis/ budget loan. Someone said that I couldnt claim this as I am working but then another said I can as I am only on a low income. Please help

    1. Jodie,

      anyone can apply for a crisis loan, however it is better if your partner applies as a single person if possible as I guess that they are JSA(c) meaning that they are not claiming for you.

  22. i am looking for help to a rent in advance where can i get one has y girlfriend is 5 mouths prenant and we needs a flat off our owe so please help me im on jsa

Hi, Im a single parent, currently living in a homeless hostel with my 3 year old and I have been offered a 2 bed flat by the council. the flat is unfurnished and I was wondering if i can get community care grant?

  24. Hi I am 23 and have a 15 month old daughter, my husband left us with no warning in September to go back to America, didn’t leave any money or anything. As he was working and I was home with the baby I couldn’t afford our rent and had to move in wih my family. I have 2 teenage sisters living at home too and there hasn’t really been room for me, myself and my daughter have been sleeping on my dad’s office floor on an old single mattress for over 5 months now. My parents are having some financial difficulty now too and are moving to a smaller house in Barnsley with one small double and 2 single bedrooms, so there is no room for us anymore with them. I have just signed the lease on a new apartment in Sheffield and move in 14th March, but I don’t have my first month’s rent as it stands and I literally have nothing furniture-wise for my house, no pans, plates, nothing. I put in an application on Thursday for a community care grant, am I likely to get it? Also how long do you think it will take? I am on income support but have only been on it for 5 weeks. My local jobcentre is Chelmsford, but my new flat is in Sheffield (where my family is from) so I’m hoping it will be processed before I move as any correspondence will come to my parents’ house here in Essex. Many thanks, Alicia.

  25. I’m movin out of a mother and baby hostel in to a two bed flat with my daughter I have no furntuire will I be able to get community care grunt as all I will be takin is my daughters cot thanks

  26. would i beable to apply for a community care grant i had one about 3years ago? coz it would help me out alot thankingyou.

  27. i am in receipt of dla for my son aged 9 diagnosed 5 months ago with high function ASD and ADHD, carers allowance,child tax credits and income support. my son has just received a statement for educational needs and has a support teacher 25 hours per week. He suffers with anxiety and sensory issues, needs visual prompting to complete basic daily tasks like dressing, teeth brushing, toiling. He also suffers with social interaction and OCD so as a result, he finds it almost impossible to cope and function with sharing a bedroom with his 5 year old brother. He often injures, lashes out or intimidates his younger brother when his personal space has been invaded, he has no understanding of body language or empathy for others and takes everything literally, if things have been moved from his particular place or his brother has used something of his, it turns his world upside down and cannot function with simple taks as his routine has changed. he needs timetables, visual prompting around the house and without the constant guides and routines he suffers with mental disfunctions and physical outbursts resulting in a very exhausted and confused boy, with little self esteem or confidence. For instance at school, he has his own desk and filing cabinet at school in a private area of the classroom just so he can function to keep up with his class. i want to split my biggest bedroom into two with a partitioned wall, so that he can have his quiet, private space to help with him learning to cope with his diagnosis. also i need to add a shower to the bathroom so that he is able to use it independently without the anxiety he experiences, such as he wants to be a grown up 9 year old boy and gets embarrassed with me being present, but is to stressed and anxious for me to leave and so finds it very difficult to complete the simple task of bathing. i also really want to be able to provide him with his own bedroom as he simply cannot complete homework with others or sounds around him and i have to let him do his homework in my bedroom where it is familiar,safe and laming to him, as his psychologist advised that it was because it was his association to me his mum. i really worry for the welfare of both my sons and feel that it is unfair on both of them to continue keeping them roomed together. i worry that my eldest will react badly to his diagnosis and seriously injure my other son without any understanding. Would i be entitled to a CCG for any of these needs? any info would be very much appreciated.

    1. Hi Daniell,

      That does sound like a situation that needs to be resolved, and we will look into what can be done.

      Can I ask were in the UK you live? as it may be the case that it is your local authority that has the ability to help, without reading through all the guidance, im at a loss as to what help can be offered via the social fund though.

      The only way I can think of getting any help from the Social fund would be on the grounds of “home improvements/ increasing safety”, may I ask how long you have been on Income Support, and the type of tenancy you have at your present property.?

  28. I’m moving out of my family home with my baby, I’m going into private renting through the council an will need all furniture including for my baby! What would I be entitled to? As I’m new to all of this!

  29. Hi,

    I need to start again and build our house up to become a home but do not have no moey to do this.. please help us.

  30. I was giving a community care grant two years ago to move in to my new house after being in temporary accommodation and i am not sure if i would be eligible for another one. My oldest son suffers from severe behavioural problems which has escalated in the last year or so and therefore circumstances have been extremely difficult, even financially. I am looking into moving house very soon as i am in a block of flats and is not substantial to my needs or my childrens needs. I have mental health problems which i have had for years and on medication for it. If i could get a community care grant it wud help me to start from scratch when i get another house to make it suitable for myself and children. If you could give me anything , i would be most grateful.

    1. If you are working less than 16 hours you may be able to claim JSA and thus build up an ability to apply for a community care grant or budgeting loan, however there is no other help that you can get for items any longer..

    1. Then apply for a CCG, however this will also depend of several other factors.

      You will not be able to get a direct answer with the information that you have supplied- and the best place to get an accurate and detailed response based on your own circumstances is the local social fund section in your area.

  47. Hi i was wondering whether you could help my boyfriend he needs to pay a bond of £350 so he can get a flat becausehe has recently been kicked out. can you help please?

    1. If he is homeless, then he can apply for rent in advance if he is actually moving into a private property.

    1. Either download it from here and fill it out with a pen, or get one from the job centre and ask for help to complete the form ( the CAB also offer help with filling out forms)

  48. Hi can you get a community care grant for a new front door and a burgular alarm as I need to feel secure in my house after me and my kids suffered violence and abuse from my ex who is now in prison for this. We all suffer mental issues and are receiving couselling from it we all sleep in one room and we need help with buying things for security I have applied for a budgeting loan and was awarded 400 which isn’t enuff.

    1. a budgeting loan is the only way that you can get money for home improvement and security ( as far as we know) out of the social fund – sorry

  50. I live in a private rented house with my two children and have just been give a council house as I was over crowded but I have no money for removal costs or carpets would I able to get a ccg?

    1. It is *possible* to have it dealt with in 1 day- however practically it takes a lot longer as you are relying on the postal service twice 3 times during the process.– at least 10 days assuming stuff is sent 1st class and sorted the following day.

  51. I am moving to a new house but i cant leave this house until i fix it and i want afurnitur and a carpet becouse i have a council house with acouncil furnitur when i move to the new house i cant take the furnitur with me . the problem is i have 4 kids one of them a baby [10 month] i dont have alot of time i ask for the grant towic but they refuced to help me , now you have a solution for me .

    1. sorry, the only way to get the items that you are saying that you need is to make an application for a grant.

Me and my partner live in a flat, we have constant noise from across the street and our neighbours, we have had so many problems while we have been living here, we now keep all our rubbish in our flat as we keep getting told of from our landlord and management for leaving bins out the back even though we dont use the back, our car is getting destroyed, we have to keep our blinds closed as the neighbours keep lokking in at what we are doing. i suffer depression and its not helping and with having to hold our rubbish in the flat makes me feel ill and my ashma plays up alot. We were both claiming JSA.

    1. You can apply for help with removal costs AND ARENT IN ADVICE, HOWEVER YOU HAVE TO BE MOVING DUE TO A ( sorry for shouting) risk to your health and safety – and be able to show this…

      1. me and my partner have both been to the doctors with serious stress issues and both been put on tablets for it, is that what you mean by risk to health?
