Essential Item Factsheets
In 2016 End Furniture Poverty launched a consultation to try and establish the essential items that every household should have access to in order to live a decent life.
The consultation produced at a list of 10 essential items:
- Bed, bedding and mattress
- Table and chairs
- Sofa and/or easy chairs
- Carpets in living rooms and bedrooms
- Curtains or blinds
- Washing machine
- Refrigerator and freezer
We have produced a set of factsheets to provide some context and justification for each item's inclusion.
As ever, we would encourage any debate on the makeup of the list - please take a look at the fact sheets below and let us know if you have anything you would, or change, or any thoughts you have.
