Starter packs

The Bridge provides Starter Packs to vulnerable clients who have been allocated their first tenancy. Many clients face the prospect of moving into an empty shell with little or no belongings. These packs are designed to meet some very basic needs such as bedding, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. To enquire about a starter pack, please telephone us or visit our offices.  Please note, if you wish to apply for a Starter Pack, proof of benefits and a copy of your tenancy agreeement will be required.
