If you are looking for help to buy household appliances (white goods), such as washing machines, fridges and freezers, help may be available to you from some charitable funds, if you meet the qualifying rules (eligibility criteria) for their help.

Our Grants Search does not tag charity profile items such as "washing machine", “fridge” or “freezer”.

To find charitable funds that may be able to help you. To find any funds that might be able to help you, search on all aspects of your background - such as current and past occupations, health, religion and nationality. The profile for the charity should say whether they give grants for white goods.

Some charities give grants according to individual need. If the charity's profile doesn't state that the charity doesn't give grants for white goods, it may be worth contacting any charities that match your circumstances and background to ask if they can help.

It is also worth checking with your local council whether they have a local welfare assistance fund and, if so, whether you are eligible for help from it to cover the cost of white goods.

Turn2us is currently running a #Livingwithout campaign about white goods.  There is information on some charities that help with white goods on the Where to Get Help page.
