Contents insurance

Your rent payment does not include insurance, which means it’s your responsibility to insure your furniture, belongings and other personal items within your home against theft, fire, and other household risks.

The My Home contents insurance scheme is a special insurance scheme provided by the National Housing Federation in conjunction with Thistle Tenant Risks and Allianz Insurance plc, and is available for all tenants and residents living in social and affordable housing.

Extreme hardship

In extreme cases of financial hardship we can provide assistance for essential items. This scheme is discretionary.

Please speak to one of the Financial Inclusion Specialists for further information.

We can also provide support accessing local grants, schemes or charities who offer free or affordable household items, including furniture packages.

Please get in touch if you would be interested in learning more.
