    Hello supastu and welcome to CAGicon.

    This thread is quite old and I think it would be better if you wouldn't mind starting your own thread here please.

    To do this, come out of this thread using the back arrow and you'll be on the forum 'front page'. Scroll up past the greeny-yellow stickies and you'll see a blue button on the left that says Post New Thread in white. Click on that and ask your questions.

    If you get stuck, please repost here for more help.

    My best, HB

    Have you thought about going to the salvation army for help? They can help with the bare essentials like sofas and bed, bedding and kitchen items. It may be worth getting in contact with them, they can also help you in other ways as well.

    There's also freecycle/freegle, but you need to be able to go and collect things from the people giving them away.

    Why did the turn you down for CCG. You do qualify as meeting criteria after being in prison and also to "resettle after unsettled way of life" however the social fund them have to prioritise what money they have and make a decision. For example if you applied for curtains and someone applied for a bed and the budget was overspent you may not be awarded. Have you got a Social Worker, can they not support your application form.

    Have you had a CCG before if so how long ago.

    See if you can get access to a care/social worker, often local hostels are run by charities who also provide support and care when you find a home, they will know exactly how to fill in a CCG form to give you a much better chance of acceptance.

    Hi Stu.

    There's also NACRO for ex-offenders. Have you been in touch with them?

    Stu, whereabouts in the country are you? Just the general region will do, you don't need to say exactly where you are living. I'll see if I can find any charities that might be able to help.

    many thanks honey bee and laughing girl for getting back to me. i live in a beautiful brand new flat in bromley. i have never heard of NACRO but will do a search. I was thinking about going to CAB to see if they can help with thic community care grant. At the end of the day i can get by with a bed and a cooker. It would be nice to get the bed new though
