Help with hoarding

If you're struggling with a hoarding condition, we may be able to support you and work with you to help keep your home safe.

Hoarding disorder is a mental health condition which usually means that someone keeps a lot of items in their home and can struggle with getting rid of them. In serious cases this can interfere with their everyday living too, making it difficult to access and use rooms in their home.

If you're struggling with hoarding, we can offer some support by trying to work with you and understand your situation. Hoarding is not something to be ashamed of, and we'll never come in and start removing lots of items from your home.

It's very important that our trades colleagues are able to access your home to carry out repairs and vital safety tests such as gas and electrical testing, and we'll need to work with you to arrange for our colleagues to carry out any work in a way that you're comfortable with while ensuring that your home is safe.

We aren't hoarding specialists, but we'll try to support you in a manner that puts your mental health first. If you want to talk to someone about hoarding, you should make an appointment to see your GP. There are also charities such as OCD-UK that might be able to help.
