Hi to all,

Can I claim a grant to buy a new sofa as we have a large family and not enough room for people to sit when they visit and the sofa we have is old and not comfy when I have lots if health problems.
Please could you advise.

    Hey @Sparklebright63. My only advice would be to consider charity shops and second-hand sofas etc - often these are cheaper.

    Hopefully, our wonderful community will be able to add more advice and ideas based on their own experience and insight  :)
