I'm going to have to work from home after tomorrow. I know I'm one of the lucky ones that can.

Thing is I don't have a desk, office chair or a printer!

When I've worked from home before it's only been for a day so I've just used my laptop and sat on the sofa, but if I'm going to be WFH for weeks or months that just not practical.

Would it be unreasonable to think work should pay for (or reimburse me for if I purchase) a cheap desk and printer?

Surely it's a health and safely thing?

I don't know?!?

It's probably unlikely given that lots of people will be in the same boat. As an ad hoc (rather than a designated or flexible home worker i.e. where it is in your contract) there is no obligation for them to provide those things. It would be a discussion with your manager and case by case basis.
