How can I get help with white goods?

Our new campaign #LivingWithout focuses on the struggle of those who live without basic household appliances.

No child should be sent to school in dirty clothes. We want every household in Britain to have a washing machine.

No one should have to live on a diet of microwave meals. We want every household in Britain to have a functioning cooker.

For those who are struggling, we have compiled a list of some of the major charitable funds who may be able to help you with the costs of white goods if you are eligible.

A quarter of people don’t have a freezer, over one in five don’t have a washing machine, and 15% don’t have a cooker. Our new campaign highlights the high number of people living without basic appliances and the impact that it has on their lives.
