    Hi and welcome,

    Sorry for your loss. Do you claim any means tested benefits like Income Related ESA or Universal Credit? If so then you maybe able to claim a loan from DWP. It does need to be repaid back from future benefit payments and how much you can borrow will depend on your circumstances. Here's some links to help you.


    Sometimes local councils have a grant scheme to help people in need but all local councils have their own criteria for this so you'll need to ask them.


    I don't know of anywhere specific that help people for things like carpets but hopefully those link will help.

    Hi and welcome to the community you may be able to get a cheaper carpet by looking at carpet shops for off cuts and also on selling sites like facebook and ebay or gumtree
