    @Connie1997 Hello and welcome to the community its great to see new members here. I am not too sure if I can help but hopefully somebody on here may have some ideas. 

    Have you looked at charities in your area that could possibly assist with furniture and stuff I know British heart foundation have charity shops selling cheap furniture, or may be some charities can help with a grant. Some carpet companies offer good deals on completing full house carpeting and may offer payment plans, facebook local selling sites normally have some adverts.

    I hope you get something sorted

    Hi @Connie1997.
    Can I ask if you're in receipt of any benefits? Depending on the benefit, you might be entitled to an advance to help with furnishing expenses. You could also try a grant checker - https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/grants-checker/ in case there's anything you're eligible for.
