Managing Hoarding

The National Training Academy
Delivery Method: e-Learning

The collection and storing of excessive numbers of belongings significantly affects a resident’s ability to live in their home.

It creates a fire risk in over 70% of cases and can cause serious problems to everyone involved including neighbours and housing management. A clear understanding of the principal characteristics of hoarding behaviour is necessary before developing a management strategy to address its consequences and prevent repetition.

This course transitions from understanding to identifying key elements for a management strategy. It provides a way forward through the legal process if a voluntary approach has not produced the necessary improvement. Managers, team leaders and frontline staff will benefit from the learning offered by this course.

  • Developing an awareness of the main characteristics of hoarding
